I received a beautiful Cala Lily from a friend. Yellow blooms. I have only had it for about two weeks. It is still thriving with new leaves forming. However, it is twice as tall as the container and the stems near the soil are turning yellow. Do I repot and how? Do I cut the blooms back at any time? I have an African Violet that I am sure needs repotting. The roots are coming above the soil. I am reluctant to repot/divide because I have killed plants before. Help! Thanks Vallery Dietrich, Outer Banks, NC
If your lily has become root bound, it is easy enough to move it to the next larger size pot by simply removing it from its pot and potting it up. Unlike many plants it is not necessary to loosen or disturb the roots, just place it in the pot and add sufficient soil to fill it to within 3/4 of an inch from the rim. When they are grown in pots Calla lilies (Zantedeschia species) should be kept constantly wet and should be given a weak solution of liquid plant food every 3 weeks while they are showing signs of new growth. Grow them in a sunny window at a temperature of about 70 degrees F. Remove the flowers when they begin to fade. When the plant has finished blooming, allow the foliage to mature and gradually reduce watering until the leaves have all died back. Allow the tubers to rest for two or three months in the dry pot.

African Violets
African Violets
Jones, H. C.
The African violet ( Saintpaulia ) is an excellent flowering house plant which will grow and flower under low light intensities found in the average home. Where there is insufficient natural light, they can be grown and flowered successfully entirely under artificial light. Large numbers of different varieties, types and colors available, and the ease with which they can be propagated make this an excellent plant for interior decoration of the home. African violets require about 1000 foot-candles of light for 8 to 12 hours per day for best growth and flowering. However, lower light levels for longer periods of time are also satisfactory. Often, it is possible to tell from their appearance whether light levels are satisfactory. If light is too low, leaves are usually deeper in color and thinner than leaves on plants receiving higher levels of diffused light. Unless light is extremely low, plants may grow well but will flower poorly or not at all. In such instances, supplemental artificial light is helpful in promoting flowering. Excessive light levels cause leaves to be pale or yellowish green, much lighter than normal and some leaves may show dark areas where they have been shaded by other leaves. Growth at high light levels is slowed and plants become more compact, however, although flowering may continue freely for a while it will eventually decrease due to chlorophyll destruction.

Bright, filtered light (12 hours per day) is best for constant flowering; artificial lights are widely used by collectors and novice growers. Light from an east window works from September to March, and a north window from March to September. If you grow them in a kitchen window (as I do) beware that cold window panes can damage leaves. Direct sun in winter may keep them flowering prolifically, but summer sun will burn them.

African Violets: When Small is Beautiful
By Niki Hayden A shrinking violet may describe a timid and shy individual, but when it comes to African violets, it’s just one of many inaccuracies. Despite their small size, lavish blooms come in brilliant colors with velvety petals. Leaves may be pink and green striped, wavy or fringed. A few can be downright loud and gaudy. Most importantly, African violets are not violets at all. They’re members of the flashy gesneriad family, which includes gloxinias. They do come from Africa, discovered near Lake Tanganyika by a German explorer in 1896, Baron Walter von Saint Paul-Illaire. But current day African violets no longer bear much resemblance to those species plants. Although associated with Victorian décor, they weren’t truly popularized unto the 1920s, when a California greenhouse began to sell them widely. "Some writers have suggested that the popularity in growing African violets coincided with fluorescent lighting," says Doug Crispin, enthusiast and owner of The Violet Showcase in Denver. Violets require about 12 hours of consistent low-level light—perfect candidates for fluorescent bulbs. Most indoor gardeners set up two grow lights in an out-of-the-way place like a basement. The triumph is bringing their violets upstairs when they are studded with flowers. Barbara and Doug bought their shop in 1978 when they supplied violets to the store. As teachers returning home after a stint in the Peace Corps, both discovered few openings in their profession. "We turned a hobby into a business," Doug says, and they have provided African violets and plenty of advice for beginners ever since.

5100 African Violets Because of their ease of propagation and ability to flower throughout the year, African violets are the most popular houseplant. African violets must receive the right amount of light to flower properly. If they are not getting enough light, the leaves become thin and develop long stems. They will usually have normal leaf color but will not bloom. If the light is too intense, growth is less vigorous and more compact. Leaves become pale or yellowish green. Often the leaves show darker areas where they have been shaded by other leaves. Flowering is decreased. The night temperature for African violets should be between 65 and 70 degrees F. The day temperature should be 10 to 15 degrees higher than the night temperature. Leaves on plants exposed to low temperatures will first turn dark then appear water soaked and finally die. Plants that are grown on a window sill can be damaged by low temperatures. The soil mixture used for growing African violets should be loose and porous so that it has good drainage. Set small plants in a 2 1/4 or 2 1/2-inch pot. As the plants grow larger, shift them to a 3-inch and later to a 4-inch pot. Establish a definite schedule for watering African violets. The amount of water will vary with the conditions under which the plants are grown. As a general rule, water the plants when the soil surface feels dry to the touch but before it becomes hard or the plants begin to wilt. The water should be room temperature; cold water will cause spots to develop on the leaves. Apply enough water each time to thoroughly saturate the soil. Throw away excess water draining through the bottom of the pot.

Have No Fear Of African Violets
NEW YORK, March 15, 2003
(CBS) There's something about African violets that can intimidate even the most experienced gardener.
The Saturday Early Show.
The African violet is a tough little plant and can often live happily and easily for decades. It is also inexpensive and makes a great gift that will last a very long time.
The Saturday Early Show asked Stephen Orr some questions about caring for the African Violets and some common misconceptions of the plant:
African violets have a reputation as being difficult to grow. Is that really the case? No, they're not hard to grow. In fact, they are hard to kill. The trick is making them happy enough to re-bloom regularly. How many different types of African violets are there on the market today? There are hundreds of varieties, with new ones being bred every year. Some of the different types are: Standard (variegated, ruffled, etc.), Miniature, Trailing, Chimeras (with unique color patterns and combinations). Are African violets related to regular violets?

African Violets Are
My Inheritance

Thelma Foster
November 1994
This is a memoir
written for my
children and heirs
How my mother would smile, if she knew of my African violet activities!
She always enjoyed flowers, and grew them in flower beds and pots everywhere possible. I remember huge gladioluses, delphiniums, dahlias, and zinnias. She and her friends exchanged dahlia roots and gladiolus tubers just as my friends and I exchange and share violet leaves and plants.
In 1970 Mom and Dad moved to Golden West Manor, in Boulder. Their corner apartment had a southern and western exposure, chosen specifically because my mother always felt cold. Even with this warm exposure, she kept the thermostat set at 80 to 82 degrees, making it very uncomfortable for others. But oh how the African violets loved it! They were the envy of her friends and neighbors. She gave them leaves. Time after time, she asked me to take baby plants. I always declined, citing lack of knowledge and a well-lighted place for them. In 1978 she and I went to a local flower shop to choose a Mother's Day gift for her. She chose a very sad African violet, because she felt it needed her help, and passed up the healthier, happier ones. (In 1994 I still have that plant, Ballet Lisa an unusually fine bright pink variety.) When she died in 1983, I inherited the violets. I felt inundated by violets, and gave away many, but kept Ballet Lisa which I frequently propagate and share with other growers, who are interested in keeping the exceptionally good, older varieties going.
