Rob's Sailor Bill

Average Rating 4.8 out of 5

Healthy but No Blooms

I could not for the life of me to get Sailor Bill to bloom. Had it for over a year and it grew as a big green dense bush. I thinned it, pruned it to try to get more sunlight to the base of plant and nothing worked. I have over 150 AVs in my collection and have never had this problem before although Stickey Wicket would not bloom for me either. It was anlmost if plant was sterile. All of my other AVs bloom heavily and are healthy. I grow under lights as well.

Very cute

Gifted this one to my mother and it has flourished. Covered in tiny, pretty light pink blooms!

Robs Sailor Bill

I purchased this plant five year’s ago it has the most prolific blooms from all other mini violets I have purchased. At one point this little plant was 8” around hanging in a marame hanger it got huge. Love this little beauty.

Pretty Plant

Received a pretty little plant well packaged. Can't wait to see it grow and bloom. Thanks VB.

First-time buyer

I had no idea African violets came in trailing varieties! I ordered this one and a non-trailing mini. They arrived in perfect shape, and both look really healthy. The packing was excellent! And shipping was very fast. This little guy has some tiny side crowns and I’m looking forward to watching him grow.
