Wanting to love it

This arrived in perfect condition and I was so excited. Unfortunately, I have been in an endless cycle of trying to nurse a small crown to produce roots only to have it start to put all its energy in producing suckers before it gets bigger than a dime (the plant, I don't mean a single leaf) before it starts to collapse again. I love all my other micro minis I've gotten from VB, this one just doesn't want to grow. Oh well, ya win some you lose some

Beautiful, teeny tiny plant!

Barring Teeny Bopper, this is the tiniest violet I've grown! I've had two different plants from the Violet Barn now (the first one was a casualty of my learning to care for violets, not the plant's fault!), and both have had single bell-shaped flowers, not the semi-double ones pictured here. Regardless, the flowers are absolutely adorable, and I love them!

So tiny!

The leaves on this beauty are perfect little spades with amazing symmetry and my plant already has a tiny wee flower stalk. Marking down a star as there does seem to be a little damage on several leaf edges. I unpacked my order just a few days ago so I'm hoping it's not a recent development but an older one and that they'll simply be replaced by healthier foliage. This is my second or third attempt in managing this particular gem over the years and I'm hoping I've learned from my mistakes.
