Beautiful Diane. I just got a pink and white one, trying my luck again with these. Since joining this app, I've learned so much on how to care for these.before I would just pour water over top of these to water..that's how I killed them I'm guessing. I've found out that's not how it's done😃 I have her sitting on a pebble tray with water👍 yours is gorgeous💜

They remind me of my Mom and Grandma. They always had them. I admit I overwatered a few but so far so good with this one. May get another. 💜😊🍁 @gjones

My mother always had african violets on her window sills and my older sister (who says she kills plants by just looking at them😂) has a beautiful collection of over 30 different african violets. I think they're great houseplants😊 @hkyfvr
