I have mostly houseplants and cacti. I'm a beginner doing constant research, trying not to kill anything. USDA zones 8a and 8b.
My first African Violets! I hope I can keep them happy. #african-violet #saintpaulia #houseplant #purple #flowers
@newbud Do you have any tips for caring for these? I noticed yours look very happy.
Nice colors, @savannahssucculentgarden l have AF with same color flowers coming, but yours has more leaves. Keep it up.
I do the watering with wicks. You thread yarn through soil and dangle it in water holding container. Keep it by the window but away from direct sun, like through blinds. Hope that helps :) ps l don't know how to do smilies with my phone.
@newbud How often do you water yours?
I put water in the container when the water dries up. The soil would feel dry, but the wick keeps it just moist.
@savannahssucculentgarden Don't worry, my AF flowers came back from the dead when l tried this :)
@newbud Thank you so much for your help! I'll try to take your advice.
You are welcome. Have fun watching them bloom.
Your leaves are flawless.
@heatherdirtyhands Thank you so much! I bought them yesterday, so I can't take any credit, but I agree that the leaves are beautiful. 😊
