African Violet Videos – From Soil To Propagation

African violets like your grandmother grew years ago

Many people enjoy growing African violets indoors under a florescent grow light system. It is easy to do and produces plants of excellent quality.

My mother has an African Violet sitting on her kitchen window sill that is over 40 years old – I guess one day I’ll inherit it. Does this make it an heirloom plant?

Maybe you have memories of someone in your family who cherished their African Violets and they were such a part of their live.

Go pick one up and start learning how to care for them. They’re great teachers. Then move on to other plants and start a plant legacy.

Below are videos to help you with care and even African violet propagation, enjoy!

African Violet Pot Selection

When selecting a pot for your African Violet you basically have 2 choices:

  • Plastic Pots
  • Terra Cotta Pots

A Mini-African violet can spend their entire life in a 2-1/2 inch pot ā€“ plastic or Terra cotta. Mini-African violets do not need to be upgraded.

Six-inch pots are fine for the larger species. However, Iā€™ve seen many African violets do very well in 4 inch pots. Do not over pot!

The downside of Terra Cotta pots is the salt build-up from water and food (fertilizer) which can accumulate along the rim and bottom of the pot over time.

Using a clean damp cloth wipe along the sides and bottom once per month to help remove the salt residue.

This will help make for a much happier African violet.
