ABOUT THE PLANT
African violets, scientific name Saintpaulia, are popular flowering houseplants known for their vibrant and delicate flowers. Here are some key features of African violets:
Flower appearance: African violets produce clusters of small, dainty flowers in a variety of colors, including shades of purple, pink, white, and blue. The flowers often have a velvety texture and can have single or double petals. Some varieties may also have fringed or ruffled edges, adding to their visual appeal.
Leaf appearance: The leaves of African violets are typically dark green and have a round or oval shape. They are often slightly fuzzy or hairy to the touch. The leaves grow in a rosette pattern and form a dense, compact plant.
Growth habit: African violets are compact, small-sized plants that are typically grown in containers. They have a clumping habit and can reach a height of 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters) and a spread of 8 to 12 inches (20 to 30 centimeters). They are popular choices for tabletops or windowsills.
Light requirements: African violets prefer bright, indirect light. They should be placed near a window with filtered light or under fluorescent grow lights. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves, so it's best to avoid exposing them to harsh, high level of sunlight.
Temperature and humidity: African violets thrive in temperatures between 65°F and 75°F (18°C to 24°C). They prefer moderate humidity levels and should be protected from cold drafts and extreme temperature fluctuations.
Watering: It's important to water African violets properly to avoid issues such as root rot. Water the plant from the bottom by placing the pot in a saucer of water and allowing the roots to soak up the water. Avoid getting water on the leaves, as this can cause spotting or rot. Let the soil slightly dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering.
