African Violet 4"
Water: Keep the soil lightly moist in your African Violet and use room-temperature water.
Humidity: African Violet leaves are susceptible to rot if kept in high humidity, so water African violets from the bottom to avoid getting excess water on the leaves.
Fertilizer: Fertilize every 2 weeks with an African Violet Liquid Fertilizer 8-14-9, but only during the active growing season (spring and summer). Only start to fertilize when the plant appears to need an extra boost. Over-fertilizing is a more common problem than under-fertilizing.
Temperature: Many varieties of African Violet prefer warm conditions (65°F / 18°C or warmer) though some can tolerate cooler conditions. Keep away from drafty windows in winter.
To Note: Thin, dark green leaves and leggy stems tell you that the African Violet is getting too little light; light green or bleached leaves indicate too much light.
Fun Fact: Plants should be shifted to larger pots as they grow, but keeping African violets slightly root-bound can encourage them to bloom. The optimal time for repotting is after some leaves have wilted a bit.
