|African Violet Plants|
Common names: African violet, violet
Description: A popular blooming plant, African violets have fuzzy heart-shaped leaves with light green or red-violet undersides and some have ruffled, smooth or serrated edges. A few varieties have variegated foliage. Petal variations include single, double and ruffled. Colors include deep purple, lavender, pink, yellow, white, red, and bi-colors.
Special care: Remove old blooms and yellowing leaves. Keep barely moist and fertilize monthly with all-purpose food. Do not let water touch leaves. With plenty of bright, indirect sunlight, or 14 to 16 hours of artificial light, they flower continuously and can last many years. Avoid placing them in a drafty area.
