Rob's Combustible Pigeon

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

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. :)

Terrific little plant

Combustible Pigeon is a great little plant with beautiful variegated leaves and good symmetrical growth. It hasn’t put out any flowers yet, but is lovely even without any blooms. This one’s a keeper.

I had bought this plant at a show a couple of years ago. It was doing great until an unfortunate over watering incident this year, which it didn't bounce back from. I am getting another one and hope it's as good as the first.

Lost this one

In ordered nine minis back in february. This one is one of these that I lost. Not sure why, probably my fault. Six plus a free one are doing great and all blooming. Possibly this one did not like it's new home. I will definitely order more semi miniatures from Violet barn. They come perfectly packaged. My very favorite is robs inner orbit. She is one beautiful plant. I will look at descriptions better and probably not try the miniature ones.

Cute little plant

I ordered this plant about a year ago. It has grown nicely in that time. I love the foliage. It’s easily one of my favorites in my collection.
