Want to keep your African violet healthy? Follow these tips.
Keep the temperature in your home between 65 to 85 degrees.
The east window is the best lighting for African violets, they need lots of light but not direct sunlight.
I have found that African Violets will also grow in a North window if the light is filtered. I have several that stay covered with blooms year-round. I like the violet pots that are made in two pieces - with them, you just keep water in the outer pot and the water soaks through the inner pot to keep them moist. Thanks for sharing this information with us and God bless you.
I like to have about 3 plants at a time and set them on a long planter saucer (about 4-5" X 8-9") that has been partly filled with aquarium rocks. I keep water in the rocks but not allowing it the pot to stand in the water. this way they get humidity even when it's so dry inside.
I've never grown any African Violets, but have always heard that if you can't get them to bloom to bury a rusty nail in the soil of the plant. A friend of mine had an African Violet that wouldn't bloom, she tried this and said it worked.
