Key Features:

  • Beautiful Blooms: The African Violet Pink features delicate flowers with pink petals and white centers, creating a striking contrast that brightens any room. These flowers bloom throughout the year, even in winter, ensuring a continuous display of beauty.
  • Compact Size: This plant is grown in a 4-inch pot, making it an ideal choice for small spaces such as windowsills, desks, and shelves. Its compact size allows for easy placement and movement around your home or office.
  • Non-Toxic: Safe for homes with pets, the African Violet Pink is non-toxic to cats and dogs, allowing you to enjoy its beauty without worry.

Care Instructions:

  • Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix specifically designed for African violets. You can purchase a commercial mix or create your own using peat moss, vermiculite, and perlite.
  • Light: Place your African violet in bright to medium indirect light. Rotate the pot regularly to ensure even growth and prevent the plant from leaning towards the light source. If natural light is insufficient, consider using fluorescent lights.
  • Watering: Water the plant at the base with room temperature water, avoiding splashing the foliage to prevent foliar spots and damage. Water when the soil feels dry to the touch, but do not let the plant stand in water or dry out completely.
  • Temperature: Maintain a comfortable indoor temperature between 70-80°F during the day and around 65-70°F at night.
  • Feeding: Fertilize with a special African violet food or a fertilizer with a higher phosphorus content (e.g., 15-30-15) at one-quarter strength with every watering. Insufficient fertilizer can lead to reduced flowering and paler leaves.

Special Care Tips:

  • Pruning: Remove extra crowns (suckers) to encourage a single-crowned growth habit. Most African violets look best with no more than five rows of leaves. Pinch off spent blooms to promote the development of new flowers.
  • Humidity: African violets thrive in humid environments. Consider using a humidifier or placing the plant on a pebble tray with water to maintain adequate humidity levels.

Display Ideas:

  • Containers: Use decorative pots that complement the plant's vibrant flowers. Ensure the pots have good drainage to prevent waterlogging.
  • Arrangements: Group multiple African violets of different colors together for a stunning display. Their velvety leaves and colorful blooms create a beautiful contrast.
  • Gift Idea: African violets make excellent gifts for plant lovers. Their year-round blooms and easy care make them a delightful addition to any home.
