My all timefavorite

Five stars because this species violet is unique and what a beauty! A small violet, fuzzy serrated dark leaves, beautiful and dainty dark bluish purple flowers. I just wish I could keep one a live in my home environment. Seems to prefer growing under lights, but very fussy. I’ll try again soon.

This plant!

I have this type of african violet and absolutely love it! Now I am thinking it is time to buy a few different types. Seriously loving african violets!

My fav SP

This little gem is by far my favorite SP and I have over ten different ones. Lovely little blooms. Can be a little fussy, doesn’t like to be ignored and needs a real regular schedule for water, fertilizer and repotting - keep up and this little plant will constantly reward you!

Fascinating plant!

African violets tend to have hairs on their leaves, this one is as hairs as some caterpillars (that's a good thing). The leaf edges are almost tan at the tips. The most interesting part is the way light shines through the translucent main leaf veins and edges. I love looking at the leaves when my plant lights are behind them! The plant hasn't bloomed yet and it is becoming a favorite. The plant arrived well packed, on the large side, and very healthy.
