African Violet Care Instructions
These little flowering beauties often hold a special sentimental place in people’s hearts. Anyone else remember grandma having a collection perched on a shelf or window frame? Well, let's make her proud of your ability to grow your own!
Light - Place your African violet in a space that’s going to get some bright natural light. If the leaves begin to yellow, it’s getting too much sun. If the leaves become leggy, it’ll need more sun than what it’s currently getting.
Water - An African violet’s leaves are sensitive to humidity, that’s why it’s suggested to water them from the bottom. Whenever possible, leave the plant in it’s plastic grower pot so you can place it in a shallow dish filled with water, allowing it to soak up from the bottom through the drainage holes. These plants like their soil to be lightly moist. Do not let them dry out completely.
*Just like people, each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations. These are basic guidelines that may have to be augmented slightly depending on the environment you place your plant in, as well as frequency and amount of water given.
