African Violets is an easy to grow house plant during the winter months they prefer bright light usually artificial lighting along with a south facing window. Keep their soil a little on the drier side, to get them to bloom keep them in tight pots when they are root bounded that is when they bloom. Feed them every few weeks with an African Violet food. Violets do like humidity trays, don’t spray them with water and don’t touch their leaves with water. Always water Violets from the bottom by placing their pots in a low dish of water for a few minutes, make sure in the winter time you never use cold water the temperature of water is important it should be room temperature. Violets prefers cool temperatures like 60 to 65 degrees.
