Rob's Combustible Pigeon

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

So cute I died

It has not bloomed yet but the foliage is gorgeous and more variegated than the photo depicts. It is the perfect tiny plant and came very healthy!

parking lot puma chow

If you are a new customer? The shipping here is worth every penny. You can see the love that goes into the plants that will grace your home. I just wish they sold leaves. I have yordered this plant twice under my old account. It is an amazing plant that shames grocery store violets. Unfortunately? A tragic fate befalls this plant at my home. It must taste great as it looks. Each time the plant amazes me and is subsequently devoured by my daughters pet Molly. A very odd chocolate brown parking lot puma? Other than (RIP) Bunny Hop? She leafs the 40+ plants here alone. Molly left not a petiole, root or crown behind. She did leaf a leaf tip inside my shoe. She (the cat) will encounter a glass barrier if I order it again.

Amazing Little Plant

I love love love my little pigeon! It has done amazingly well in the little over a year I have had it. The variegation on my particular plant is utterly stunning, as it is much whiter on the leaves than in the example photos with beautiful green freckles :) My plant has bloomed several times already and presently is blooming again at the time of this review.

Had this one for a while now, though it hasn't bloomed for me yet, the foliage is very pretty! Can't wait to see the blooms on this mini.

Beautiful Mini Violet

Love this one! I just got back into African violets this year and ordered a combustible pigeon in my first ever order of mini violets. It has been doing wonderfully, filled out and bloomed since I received it in June. The variegation on my plant is stunning. :)
