Rob's Humpty Doo

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

Sweet blooms

Humpty Doo is a great little trailer, the blooms look exactly like the picture, and the description is spot on, for my experience with this little charmer. Blooms like crazy in my north window

Amazing plants

I just ordered for the first time from the Violet Barn and I can’t stress how impressed I am with the care that was taken with the packaging of my plants for shipment. The quality of the plants I ordered couldn’t have been better if I had been at the nursery myself hand picking my own plants from what was available. My Rob’s Humpty Doo arrived with two crowns already and nine buds ready to bloom. I can’t wait to see the flowers! I also ordered a Streptocarpus (Bristol’s Poodle Skirt) and a Hoya (Lanceolata Bella), both of which also arrived in great shape. I couldn’t have done better picking them out as well. All of my plants are super healthy. I’m already picking my next order!

I love my little Humpty Doo!

Actually, I love all the violets I’ve purchased from Violet Barn! But this one is my favorite! It blooms profusely, and the white flowers with the bluish/purplish accents really make her stand out! Thanks Violet Barn, for another great addition to my collection!

I was gifted one of these from a friend years ago. It was my first trailer and was so beautiful. I accidentally killed it through improper care back then and I'm looking forward to buying another now that I know how to care for them better.

Beautiful plant

This plant is so beautiful and loves growing in a self watering pot.

Rob's Humpty Doo

While this plant hasn't done as well as I'd like I'm looking forward to it blooming

Challie Frealy Apr 16 2022, 15:38 PM

This flawless creature

I ordered a "seller's choice" trailer and got this one—it was already blooming when it arrived (safe and expertly packaged). That was nearly a year ago, and it's never stopped blooming. It's currently absolutely loaded with blooms and looks incredible. Before this order, I had experience with other houseplants (aroids, etc) but my only other AV was a standard NoID from Trader Joe's, so for me, this was very beginner-friendly. I have it in a wick-watering setup per instructions from the great community in Reddit's r/AfricanViolets. I do nothing but take off dead flowers sometimes and refill the reservoir.

Lovely little plant

Very cute little plant that is easy to care for. I bought it in Feb of this year. It has easily doubled in size and is blooming now.

Amie Simmons Nov 12 2021, 15:23 PM

Great little plant

This is one of my favorite trailers. It grows well and blooms well.

Emily Forrester Oct 25 2021, 23:48 PM

Always blooming

I just love this one ! The blossoms look like delicate , antiques ❤

Betty Belliveau Oct 10 2021, 19:15 PM

Sweet and Strong

Rob’s Humpty Doo arrived with blooms and ready to serve up more. This is such a pretty little plant and starting to trail nicely with an abundance of blooms that have been going non-stop. This one’s a keeper!

Linda Tormey Oct 05 2021, 10:37 AM

Beautiful Humpty Doo

I received this beauty as a freebie. It’s got such tiny little flowers. I love all of Rob’s trailers. I recommend this trailer highly!

Nancy Frankovich Sep 23 2021, 23:20 PM

So perfect!

Got this beauty several months ago and it already had some blooms which was a wonderful surprise. Packed to perfection with nary a leaf out of place. Best place to get violets shipped safely to your home and always healthy and as described.

Ashley Speranzella Sep 22 2021, 15:44 PM

Robs humpty do

Such a beautiful heavy bloomer with purple and white stripe love it!

Humpty Doi

LOVE. THIS. PLANT!!! I lost my first one in a tragic house-sitter over-watering incident

Rob's Humpty Doo

I received this tiny little beauty as a freebie. I just love the teeny tiny little flowers.

Challie Frealy Aug 20 2021, 19:46 PM

Rob’s Humpty Doo

This is a wonderful little trailer that just arrived in full bloom. I am looking forward to seeing it grow into its full potential.

Linda Tormey Aug 07 2021, 09:04 AM

Beautiful little plant

I received this plant packed safely and securely so that it arrived at my home in perfect condition. The plant was very healthy and in bloom, and after two weeks of letting it acclimate to my home, I just repotted it and it looks spectacular. Thank you Violet Barn!

Kate Novick Jul 05 2021, 20:08 PM

Adorable, vigorous plant!

Another one of Rob's winners! So vigorous and easy to propagate! I swear you can't go wrong with one of Violet Barn's trailers!

JennyMae Kho Jul 04 2021, 15:03 PM

Already blooming!

I recently received this cute plant in my first order. It and it's friends came without a leaf out of place and already with several blooms. I can't wait to see what they will do once they are accustomed to their new home!

Carol Teal Jun 17 2021, 23:18 PM

Small but Mighty Bloomer

I am a novice African violet grower. Add this plant to your collection if you are a beginner like me. It will bloom and thrive despite any cultivation errors you inflict upon it. This is a hearty and forgiving plant.

Anonymous Jun 11 2021, 10:01 AM


This little trailer arrived with several blooms and was the perfect gift for my sister in law's birthday. She loved it! Thank you, Violet Barn!

Nicole Hamilton May 05 2021, 13:32 PM

Consistently covered in blossoms

This was my first venture into trailing violets and quickly converted me as a huge fan over conventional African Violets. I love the bluish-purple and white blossoms which completely cover the plant. And the blossoms last so long too.

Anonymous May 03 2021, 16:00 PM


I love the Violet Barn and my Robs Humpty Doo. It is beautiful and healthy. Can't wait to order more

Mary Barger Apr 28 2021, 21:15 PM

Love the flowers!

This is the first trailing violet I have tried and I am looking forward to learning about them. The flowers are really nice and there are lots of blooms! I definitely recommend this one!

Anonymous Apr 17 2021, 22:29 PM

So Many Blooms!

It came with buds and blooms on and has over quadrupled in size in such a short amount of time! Such a prolific bloomer and very hardy

Beth Sturtz Apr 02 2021, 20:45 PM

Lovely blooms, but throws out solid coloring

I found this plant to be very beautiful when blooming. Mine blooms continuously. I found though that occasionally an arm will sport and turn solid colored. This is fixable and it is best to remove that part to keep the beautiful white with blue side strips.

Beverly Wombold Apr 02 2021, 18:18 PM

Very healthy and hearty!

I bought this plant at a flower show in a tiny, two inch pot. I was hesitant to purchase it because I had heard African Violets are very difficult and I was a little worried. I was wrong! It has grown and bloomed frequently over the last two years and is just a beautiful little plant (not so little anymore, though)! I have repotted it and done some propagation from broken leaves and the new plants are growing beautifully as well.

Erin Van Bremen Feb 09 2021, 20:20 PM

Lovely plant

Very pretty blooms. Easy to grow and care for!

Kathleen Anderson Oct 10 2020, 11:41 AM

A sweet, vigorous bloomer!

This is a wonderful little violet! It started putting out buds and blooms not long after it arrived! Its white blossoms are so sweet and cute! I can't wait to see it grow into maturity!

JennyMae Kho Sep 29 2020, 14:02 PM

Happy Trailer

I bought this trailing Violet a few months ago. I have purchased AVs from Rob for years, read the description about Rob's Humpty Doo but never bought one. I am delighted that I finally did. I have my AV collection in a South West window. Although I keep shades on the windows to prevent the leaves of my plants from burning, they get bright filtered sun light. Mr. Humpty Doo has already taken a liking to this corner and put on a show of pretty white with purple blue stripes. Just as pretty and full of flowers as the description stated. He looks so happy and I am too. A definite for anyone who loves a happy trailer.

daniel hicks Sep 18 2020, 23:14 PM

Amazing plant!!!

My mother has one of these and it is absolutely beautiful! This plant is my reason for starting my own violet collection.

Ginger Parker Sep 13 2020, 21:23 PM

Non-Stop Bloomer

I received this plant as a tiny baby, just a month and a half ago... started blooming right away, and hasn't stopped! Just beautiful.

Lourdes Kisich Aug 29 2020, 17:32 PM

Awesome little bloomer

This is one of my first plants from The Violet Barn. It’s absolutely beautiful and easy to grow. I Love it!! I have it hanging in a window and it brings me much joy!! Thank you!!!

Karil Gierum Aug 11 2020, 22:42 PM

Beautiful Plant

Received my order 2 weeks ago, and Rob's Humpty Doo is already loaded with gorgeous blooms. I want another one!/

Jimmie Childress Aug 09 2020, 14:59 PM

Love this little one

My favorite trailer. It never fails to perform to the maximum. Super prolific.

Cindy Schott Jul 24 2020, 11:44 AM


Happy violets in ALASKA! All arrived happy, healthy and all are happily BLOOMING.

Michelle Barnes Jul 14 2020, 23:07 PM


I also forgot to mark the stars and to say that this arrived flowering!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lynn katsaros Jun 09 2020, 07:43 AM

Adorable Trailer

Cute little thing that grows profusely!

Lindsey Sinclair Jun 08 2020, 00:32 AM

Hooray for Humpty Doo

This gorgeous trailing violet just blooms and blooms for me. The white and blueish-purple sides on the blossoms is lovely. This was one of my first Violet Barn purchases. Her happy blooms and willingness to grow and thrive in my learning stages of African Violet care has boosted my confidence and led to more purchases on line from the Violet Barn.

Barbara Farrington May 30 2020, 15:18 PM

Beautiful trailer!

This little one blooms constantly! It arrived securely packaged and in perfect condition. It's such a beautiful add to my collection.

Mallory Ladd May 19 2020, 16:45 PM

A happy violet

Very heavy, constant bloomer

REGINA HENDERSON May 19 2020, 15:44 PM

'Rob's Humpty Doo' semi mini trailer African Violet is a real HEAD TURNER!!

This semi-mini trailer African Violet from The Violet Barn seems to always be in bloom in our home. Both artistic, and elegant looking, it has a lush growing habit, and has the most luscious almost constant blossoms! A must in every collection! Great gift too! 5 Stars!

Lee Mihalic Feb 19 2020, 16:10 PM


Rob's Humpty Doo was one of my freebies. Beautiful little plant with delicate little flowers. It's already putting out more buds! Looks like it will be a prolific bloomer! Thanks for your quality plants and service Violet Barn!

Deborah Upton Nov 05 2019, 00:52 AM

Rob’s Humpty Doo

This was my first trailing violet and it’s a winner. It blooms profusely and grows well.

Claire Sheridan Oct 23 2019, 19:04 PM

My first trailing violet

Thank you for the freebie. I did not expect this in my order. The little flowers are so pretty. Now, I have two trailing violets. This and Rob's Galiwinku.

Maria Oprisko Jul 01 2019, 10:07 AM

Love Humpty Doo

This is my favorite trailer. I don’t think the picture does it justice. The blossoms are lovely in their simplicity — soft off-white outlined in a lovely purple blue. They are unlike any of my other trailers. As always, the preparation for shipping is impeccable .

Donna Pierson Jun 27 2019, 23:10 PM

I forgot

I forgot to give this pretty one a rating. As usual for VB plants it deserves 5 stars.

Nancy Breen Jun 11 2019, 17:48 PM


This plant really took off and grew very quickly The blooms are some of the prettiest I have seen. Even my hubs noticed the blooms and commented I divided it into five plants as three coworkers wanted it and it still is growing strong Thank you for this lovely plant Gulfcoastgal

donna woehr May 02 2019, 00:38 AM

No Rest for this Violet

This violet just keeps on growing and blooming-it doe not know what the word rest means -just beautiful blooms in abundance, a great pleasure to see first thing in the morning-it never lets me down.

Anonymous Dec 11 2018, 16:21 PM

Robs Humpty Doo!

I was kinda nervous about getting a trailer. Thought it would need a lot of upkeep. But im so impressed with this cute little plant its so easy to grow and take care of. You cant go wrong with Robs humpty doo. Always seems to be in bloom and I get lots of compliments!

Jessica Lind Aug 05 2018, 22:36 PM

Favorite trailer

I love this one. This trailer blooms very freely. When it blooms, there are many blooms. I also love how each flower is different from the rest with the purple and whte. I get tons of compliments on this trailer fro plant lovers and none plant lovers. Highly recommend!

Kathalina McGinnis Aug 01 2018, 19:35 PM

Great trailing

I bought this years ago and it blooms all year round. I receive lots of compliments.

Teresa Jun 20 2018, 10:52 AM

Great little plant!

This wonderful cultivar has been blooming non-stop since receiving it and is forming lots of new flower stalks. Each blossom is larger than a dime and looks like a semi-double chimera. I love it and can’t wait for it to get bigger!

Corey Thompson May 21 2018, 13:32 PM

Great bloomer!

I bought this about three years ago from Violet Barn and it has been a constant bloomer. It makes me smile every time I see it.

Amy Jones May 08 2018, 16:14 PM

Wonderful Plant

Received with a bud ready to bloom, plant is very healthy and so cute! I'm looking forward to growing this one.

Florence Lu Jun 10 2017, 02:00 AM


I've owned dozens of trailers and this one is at the top of its class. It is easy to grow and the flowers are delicately beautiful. Problem free beauty.

Wanda Blue Oct 15 2016, 16:53 PM

Rob's Humpty Doo

Received a healthy plant with many bi-color blooms. Growing nice and still blooming. Very nice trailer!

Lynda Nardone Oct 02 2016, 12:57 PM


Beautiful shape; beautiful blooms!

Anonymous Sep 25 2016, 09:34 AM

Fast Grower, Constant Bloomer

One of my faster growing trailers. It seems to bloom readily and in large numbers. You can't go wrong with this plant. I have grown it with and without heavy pruning and it seems to grow well for me either way.

Angelo Aledo May 26 2016, 04:09 AM

Constant bloomer

This has been a constant bloomer since it arrived 6 months ago. It is one of my favorite trailers.

Beverly Wombold Nov 10 2015, 09:37 AM

Nice trailer with cute blooms

I love all the Rob's trailers I've grown and this one is no exception! The picture really doesn't do this one justice. The blooms are a cute white with touches of blue.

Merna Addison Jun 13 2015, 01:09 AM


Very nice violet.

Eren Akgündüz May 19 2015, 10:02 AM

Perpetually flowering

Very stunning little trailer that blooms non-stop for me over a year now, and it's still growing each day. But since early this month, I have given to my mum as a Mother's Day gift so I'd like to buy one more of this this summer!

Sean Koh May 19 2015, 04:14 AM

Love it

I bought 5 trailing violets last Spring and this is one of my favorite, it grows fast and it blooms non stop. I will buy 5 more trailings this spring!

Christine Wang Apr 09 2015, 22:05 PM


One reviewer on this was right. The picture does not do it justice. I got this one as a freebie and I will have to say that it has become one of my favorites. Thanks for the freebie.

Kathalina Adams Mar 12 2015, 13:52 PM

robs humpty doo

I had this plant until my grandson helped me with my violets. Wish I had been there when he was making them "fly". Have to replace it. In bloom constantly, beautiful violet. Definitely a "gotta have"

Anonymous Oct 06 2014, 09:05 AM

Lots of blooms

This is a violet with pale green leaves. It arrived looking rather frail, so I save a leaf off of it. I domed the leaves and kept the young plants domed, even as they began to bloom. All 3 plants turned into lovely, blooming plants , and I have tentatively taken some out to try them w/o a domed environment. I live in central TX where it is hot and dry, and I've not had a lot of luck with the pale green violets. So far so good, though with this one.

Mary Kathryn WILSON Oct 01 2014, 15:48 PM

Nice Trailer.

love this! Easy bloomer.

Anonymous Jun 14 2014, 14:34 PM

The picture doesn't do this one justice!

I ordered 8 trailing violets and this one is my favorite. It was blooming when it arrived and hasn't stopped yet. I thought the foliage was light because of being in the box but it is still a light spring green compared to the other seven. The leaves are larger than the other trailers I got. The plant is incredibly vigorous. The best part is the flowers. They don't look like the picture. They are much prettier with white blooms and the prettiest shade of 'blue' on the sides. You don't have to get close up to see the beauty of the flowers either. The plant is just an eye catcher. I'm very glad I bought it!!!

Wanda Blue Jun 07 2014, 23:55 PM

Robs Humpty Doo

love this violet fast grower such pretty flowers.blooms all the time!

Tiffany Bauer Apr 21 2014, 19:39 PM

This is a must-have!

Wonderful little plant that forms a nice mound and produces a large amount of flowers. Just delightful! I just won Best in Show with this one! I would recommend it to both experienced growers and those who just want to try a trailer. It is so easy to grow. Get it!!

Lona Pidanick Apr 21 2014, 11:16 AM

Great little plant!

This plant is so easy to grow and is always covered in blooms. Very little shaping is necessary as it grows into a lovely dome shape all on its own. Great for showing or just to enjoy. I highly recommend this plant.

Lona Pidanick Apr 21 2014, 00:44 AM

So easy to grow!

Received this violet in an order placed last year as my free one. It is now one of my absolute favorites. I took it to my office and placed it on top of my filing cabinet near a window and I get compliments on it nearly every day. Lots of beautiful blooms and so easy to maintain. Great choice.

Melanie Landers Mar 06 2014, 17:05 PM

Fantastic, easy grower!

Rob's Humpty Doo is a great plant, It forms perfectly almost by itself, and is always good for blooms! This one won Best Trailer for me in the Lonestar (Texas) state show a few years ago!

Nichole Alvarez Feb 03 2014, 08:27 AM


I won't get a Freebie for this cause I didn't put it in the blank but wanted everyone to know that between last years order, the one a few weeks ago and the one I received Friday, the plants are all just beautiful. This was my first trailer and wow! How impressive! It was a very cute plant, what I could see of it cause it was so covered with blooms, I couldn't really tell!....totally awesome! I will be back again, for sure.

Judy Siemsen Dec 01 2013, 15:46 PM

Extremely profuse

Easy to grow, fast growing. Flower bloom look like chimera because I've never get bloom true from leave cutting!

Anonymous Jun 13 2013, 05:22 AM


I ordered this not long ago. It is a beautiful little plant! It grows quickly and is in constant bloom. The flowers are just as decribed- white with blue side stripes. The leaves are a light green to medium green. Get this one you will be so happy!

Priscilla Apr 20 2013, 14:07 PM

There's a reason it has this many reviews!

When they say "extremely profuse" they are not kidding. Great plant!

Greg Meissner Aug 23 2012, 23:49 PM

Terrific Bloomer

I bought this plant and a few Non Rob's hybrids about a year ago. All the plants arrived in wonderful condition, well grown in 2 inch pots. Humpty Doo has been consantly in full bloom. The others.... not so much. They have great foliage, but, few, if any, blooms under the same growing conditions. Apparently, Rob's hybrids thrive even under my (quite likely) less than ideal growing conditions. My next order will be of more Rob's varieties.

Virginia Mentrak Aug 21 2012, 09:04 AM

Lovely Plant

This is a lovely plant. I had a big one at home for 3 years and it is just BEAUTIFUL, sadly my not so lovely parrot destroyed it. It flowers almost non stop and very easy to take care.

I am pleased with this plant. It has acclimated well and is thriving even in a short time. I'm anxious to see it bloom.

sharon ritchie Oct 08 2011, 00:18 AM

Robs Humpty Doo

This is my first trailing violet. I couldn't decide which one to order, so I let the Violet Barn make the selection. It arrived blooming and full of buds. It is thriving! I am so pleased with it that I am ordering two more of Rob's varieties.

Frances Ring Sep 22 2011, 10:37 AM


I am new to trailing African Violets. I've been to nurseries around the San Francisco Bay Area and have not found any. This is my first online plant order and this is the free plant I received! The package arrived 2 days after it was shipped, and everything was packed very well. The plant has 7 open blooms and more buds waiting to bloom.
