GROWING AFRICAN VIOLETS Prepared by Paul A. Thomas, Extension Horticulturist-Floriculture Once found only in the coastal woods of east Africa, African violets ( Saintpaulia ionantha) are now among the most popular indoor plants. They are easy to grow and offer a wealth of beautiful flowers. For the indoor gardener with limited space, African violets have an added attraction with sound cultural practices, they can be grown quite successfully on window sills. Proper culture and a desire for house plants are the keys to a well grown African violet like this.
Classification and Varieties African violets are available in a wide range of colors and types. You may choose from several hundred varieties depending upon the flower color, form and plant characteristics you prefer. Flower color varies from blue to violet, lavender, pink, red-violet, blue-violet, lavender-pink and white. Flowers may be single, double, semi-double, star-shaped, fringed or ruffled. Some varieties produce flowers with two or more rows of petals on one color with the rest fringed in a different color. Leaf types are described as plain, quilted, spidered, ruffled, fringed, scalloped, spooned, pointed and variegated.

Starting New African Violets
Date: April 1989 (Revised April 1995) Source: NDSU Extension Service Horticulturists African violets are one of our most popular indoor flowering plants. Indoor gardeners enjoy producing new plants to increase their own collection and to give young plants as presents to friends and neighbors. There are two basic ways to produce new African violets: through leaf cuttings and division of crowns. Handle leaf cuttings carefully to avoid the rotting of the leaf petiole (PET-ee-ohl) or "leaf stem." For best results, select semi-mature or moderately large leaves. Use a sharp knife to remove the petiole close to the center of the plant or the crown. Root leaf cuttings in a 50-50 mix of peat moss and perlite or vermiculite (ver-MIK-ya-light). Make sure the leaf blade sits above the rooting medium. The leaf petiole should be about one inch long, enough to hold the leaf blade in a nearly upright position. Keep the propagating material moist at all times because periods of dryness will discourage root development. Warm temperatures stimulate roots to grow quickly. Ideally, the root temperature should be around 70 degrees. Do not place the cutting in an overly bright location. Excessive light can quickly destroy the leaf blade.

Growing African Violets
African violets or Saintpaulia, are among the most popular houseplants. They are found in a broad range of flower colors and leaf types. They grow best under fluorescent lights or in the diffuse light of a north- or east-facing window. When they refuse to bloom it is usually due to insufficient light. When they receive too much light their leaves turn yellow. African violets enjoy temperatures around 70 F during the day and in the 60s at night. They do best where they have ample humidity, at least 60%. They can be watered from below or above. Use room temperature water because cold water will spot the foliage. African violets are quick and easy to propagate. This is a fun way to share a new variety with a friend. These plants require rich potting soil that is available at your local garden center.

How to care for African violets
African Violets are plants with heart shaped leaves and delicate blossoms. True to their cousin, the wild violet, a lot of the blooms are purple in color. However, African Violets do come in blooms of yellow, red, fuchsia, white and multi-colored. Their leaves can be dark green to multi-green. Most of the time these plants are kept inside as houseplants. They can be very stingy with their blooms if they are not taken care of properly. But, when they get the sunlight and nutrition they need they can produce a multitude of healthy blooms year round. bodyOffer(19793) The first consideration when taking care of your African Violet is light. African Violets need at least twelve hours of light a day. They thrive best with natural sunlight, so if there is a window they can sit in where sun shines through for most of the day, they will be happiest there. However, this is a difficult thing to achieve so many people resort to artificial light. Your local nursery will have plant lights of all shapes and sizes and designs. Bring a picture or your plant and the area you wish to keep it with you and the workers at the nursery can help you decide on the plant light that best suits your needs. While you are there, you might as well discuss the proper plant food with the nursery worker. There are many types of plant foods available. It is best to buy one that is specifically for African Violets. This way you are sure to give your plant the right amount of nutrients without giving it things it does not need or will harm it. There are different formulas of African Violet food, and depending on the size and type of your plant, you will need to know which one is best for your particular African Violet.

YOUR AFRICAN VIOLET Contact: Dr. Leonard Perry, Extension Professor
University of Vermont African violets are one of America's favorite houseplants, and one of the least demanding in terms of care to grow and flower. To begin with, African violets prefer soils that are evenly moist. Improper watering, especially overwatering, is a primary cause of problems. Allow the soil to dry out only slightly before watering, then water from below. Flush out fertilizer salts with a thorough watering from the top at least once a month. And keep wet foliage out of the sun as the heat can leave marks. Violets are sensitive to extremes in water temperature. Water that's too hot or too cold will cause white rings on the leaves. Allow water to stand overnight to bring it to room temperature and dissipate any chlorine present. To produce constant bloom, apply fertilizer on a regular basis. But don't over do it. Slow- release fertilizers are a practical way to supply safe levels of nutrients at each watering. Violets need strong, bright light but not direct sun. Lack of light curtails blooming and causes leaves to grow upright. Too much light results in leaves that are brittle, scorched, and yellow. Under natural light, an east window is often the best in winter. Northern exposures are better during hot, summer months.

Effects of Using Hard Water to Grow African Violets
Greg wrote: hello my name is greg and I would like to know the effects of growing plants (violets). with hard and soft water. I need to know with works better, and so forth. Thanx Greg
Hi Greg, Violets do need many of the minerals found in hard water, however, the chlorine used in public water systems can be deadly to many houseplants. I strongly recommend that you fill your watering container, and let it sit for a minimum of 24 hours. The chlorine will have dissipated by then, making it somewhat more safe for your plants. I keep several gallon milk bottles filled for watering, and use them as needed. The water will be room temperature, which is much less of a shock to the plant. It is wise to bottom water all house plants, but particularly African violets. Watering from the top can cause crown rot in violets, which is fatal. Never leave your plants sitting in water for more than a couple hours though. This can also be fatal African violets like a great deal of humidity, but not wet leaves and stems. There are many commercial fertilizers especially for violets. For the best plants, you must use one of these products, since violets have very definite requirements for pH and trace elements.
