Rob's Inner Orbit

Average Rating 4.7 out of 5


This quickly became my favorite! Arrived super healthy and well packed! Already in full bloom about six weeks later, and new leaves are super variegated :)

Beautiful Halo of Sparkling Flowers

It was worth waiting for this blooming cycle! A full halo of large sparkling medium to darker pink blossoms setting off a stunning variegated crown and extending over the outer leaves showing less prominent variegation. The colors of the flowers and leaves complement each other well. The plant maintained its wonderful symmetry as it grew too.

Healthy plant

Received this little beauty today and thrilled with the shipping. Disappointed though as it has not even one leaf with any variegation. Beautiful plant though and looking forward to a bloom. (VB note: summer temps too warm, variegation will reappear when cooler).

Beautiful Symmetry

The blooms are yet to come, but this plant is showing off its wonderful leaf variegation and rosette-shape. Eager to see it reach its full growth potential and blooms.

I am so in love with this plant!

The other sister

I have a “Rob’s Outer Orbit” and I wanted to complete the duo with this little stunner! Can’t wait to have both of them blooming together!!

Rob’s Inner Orbit is out of this world!

I received this little beauty a few weeks ago, and while not yet blooming, the foliage is just lovely! I can hardly wait to see it bloom.

In love!

The leaves alone are gorgeous! So much pretty then the picture! I am getting another as a gift for my sister! *

Darling mini

This is such a beautiful mini. The leaves alone are worth the purchase but when the blooms get going it’s a real eye catcher. The petals really so sparkle.

Rob's Inner Orbit

The plant was really cute, but it came a lot smaller then I thought, and it had some leaves that had been removed from it.

Rob's Inner Orbit

Love the round variegated leaves. Grows very symmetrically. Beautiful pink blossoms. Always one of my must haves.

Maybe next time...

So many beautiful varieties to choose from! Didn't get it this time, but this beauty will be on my wants list.

Ordering again

This was the prettiest of all the semi miniatures. Lovely shimmery blooms. Sadly I managed to get mites on it and was not able to even get a leaf to propagate. Purchasing again for my collection. It gets fairly large for a minature.

Robs Inner Orbit

I received this plant a few weeks ago and it is adorable! It already has nicely shaped leaves with pink on the edges. I am looking forward to the pink blooms to coordinate with the leaves. I am new to growing Violets and am hooked already with this plant. I bought a few more Violets and am enjoying them very much. I don't think you can go wrong with this beauty!

Lovely foliage

This one is still pretty new for me, but the leaves are beautiful. I am sure the blooms are as well, but it is exciting to have an easy to grow one that has color even without the blooms.

Lovely little violet!

Just received my Inner Orbit and I love the shape of her beautiful tiny leaves! Looking forward to her blooming. TVB has very healthy plants that are packaged so well you know they have been given the best beginnings to thrive in your home with your own own TLC.

One of the best pink semiminatures!

Love the rounded leaves and delicate pink blossoms with the thin white edge! Always have one in my collection along with it's companion plant - Rob's Outer Orbit. Highly recommend buying both. Give it 5 stars!!!

African Violet

I'm getting this as a gift and its really beautiful. She had one just like it.

Wonderful Mini!

I gave this plant to my aunt a year ago and it is still doing well. The almost constant blooming and beautiful little leaves make me think about buying one myself!

Beautiful Foliage

My mom and I have grown this variety for years and it has always performed well. Even when not in bloom, the foliage is beautiful. I like that as the blooms age, they fade and give the plant a multi toned look. It takes a very short break between bloom cycles and is always covered when it blooms!

Dainty bloomer

I've had this pretty little plant for years and am still delighted with it. The blooms compliment the foliage. And it looks wonderful even when it isn't in bloom.

Awesome plant, showy blooms

I gave this plant as a gift, and for good reason. It blooms all the time and the blooms are so pretty. I wish I had my own :)
