I bought one in October and within weeks it had developed stem or root rot! I rescued some leaves and they are growing roots but we’ll see if they produce healthy plants!

Thanks Richard. I used to kill my violets but since watering less and using violet food they are doing well. 💖 @richard.spicer.7906

Hope they do well for you. I lost one to a bug infestation and I have 2 rooted leaves in soil but so far nothing growing. It does take time I hear. 🤞🤞 @bluefox23

It’s gorgeous! @hkyfvr it makes me want to try one again. I used to grow them like crazy before I had kids. Now the kids are out, maybe I can do it!!

I am sure you can. Now that I have figured out how not to kill them, I am enjoying their lovely blooms and foliage 💖💚 @cheriej

I realized I had only purple and knew I had to get a pink. They were all looking sad before Christmas but found this in the grocery store. Actually I bought all of them there. 👍💗💕 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr you sometimes can’t beat a grocery store plant! Some of my best performing plants came from the supermarket 😛
