Garden: African Violets

While trimming the leaves on the violets, I laid some of them down in a pan of moist dirt. I then covered the pan with clear plastic wrap. About 8 weeks later, I had nine little babies to transplant. The mother is 11 inches across and the babies are 2 inches across.

I am with Keeper60. I do great with violets for a while then boom, they all die away. Don't think I would qualify for a green thumb with violets at all.

Thanks for sharing your lovely violets with us Thrifty Funners.

Thank you for the tip. I tried once to get new sprouts but it didn't work for me, will try this method.

Gorgeous Blooms! Mine rarely bloom anymore even though I periodically give them AF food, maybe a bit more light exposure I guess.
