African violets come in assorted varieties. Often thought as a high maintenance plant to grow and care for, here are a few steps to help you along the eay to growing a beautful plant for years to come!
Begin caring for your plant by keeping it within temperature’s of 60* F- and 75* F.
Lighting is essential to your plants health. A sensitive flower, remember that too little or too much light can kill the plant.
Winter months mean giving your plant just a little more attention than it’s going to get with light. Try using incandescent or fluorescent lighting from the southern direction.
In fall and spring: shade the plant from direct sunlight all together.
During summer, spring and fall use a fertilizer stick for plant. Give it time off in the winter and skip fertilizing!
African violets bloom best when their roots are crowded, so when replanting use care in removing only damaged roots, leaves and flowers- but remove them all.
Repot an African Violet in spring or early summer.
Replace old pot with a larger one.
Use fresh planting soil.
Uproot, clean up and repot.
Moisten soil and watch your plant grow!
