Today is a new day. I am hoping for good things. Starting with my posts being published correctly. If this one comes across with no photo, not my fault.
These African Violets are a favorite houseplant of mine. They are delicate and can be a challenge to grow.
Here are a few tips if you are interested in growing these beauties:
- Keep the soil lightly moist, but avoid getting the leaves wet, as they are susceptible to rot. Use room temperature water.
- Fertilize every 2 weeks with a high phosphorous plant food, but only during the summer growing season. Only start to fertilize when the plant appears to need an extra boost. Over-fertilizing is a more common problem than under-fertilizing.
- Many varieties prefer warm conditions (65 degrees F or warmer) though some varieties can grow in cooler conditions.
- Thin, dark green leaves tell you that the plant is getting too little light.
I am sharing a photo and hope you can see it as well. Let’s hope we all have a great day today!
I am continuing with the 365 Photos Challenge and I am now on Day 124.
