Two years ago, I purchased, a sick looking African violet for $1. I’ve always had house plants, although fewer when I had cats, but what a gift to have flowers (deep purple) 1in the house in December.
Then last year a neighbor gave me a dying plant and it was so long since it bloomed that she didn’t remember what color the flowers were (light purple).
With the right soil and food, they are easy to take care for a give you a baby or two each year without extra care.
I’m at a point where the plants I repotted today will make some wonderful gifts (once they heal)!
Do you like plants, too? Maybe you have African violets hat are ready to propagate from leaves or separate? Here’s a series of videos on YouTube that I subscribe to.
