African Violets are one of the easiest and loveliest blooming houseplants I can grow!
I decided to add a plant by the back door and one in the laundry room where they won’t take up too much space but make me smile when I see them:)
Both rooms have a sunny window to provide enough light for those cute little flowers.
I gathered my materials: Fertilome African Violet Soil, pots I had in the basement, Bonide Houseplant Systemic, African Violets, Polished Rocks, Moss and dried Lychens
I filled both pots about 1/2 inch from the top and created a hole in the middle so I could set the plant down in the soil and then push the soil back around the plant.
I added enough soil around the plant and packed it in so that it was
level with the base of the plant.
Then I sprinkled the Systemic around the top of the soil to keep the fungus gnats from hatching and flying around the house.
Next, I added the polished rocks, moss and dried lychens to cover
the soil and make it extra pretty!
Don’t forget to give your newly potted plants a drink of water &
to keep them blooming for a long time.
I use Miracle-Gro Blooming Liquid Fertilizer – just two pumps every other time you water!
When it comes to watering African Violets I test the soil to make sure it is dry and careful not to get the leaves wet as this will cause them to rot and die.
I love African Violets! I have a sunny window that could use some pretty.
Thank you for your comment Mandy, hope you enjoy planting some African Violets!
