2nd Stickey review

Maybe its me but I cannot get this trailer to bloom. I reviewed Stickey 6+ months ago and I have finally given up. Its growth habit , for me, is an extremely tight little ball. I tried thinning it out to get some light to the stems to help get it to bloom. Nothing. Not even a sign of a bloom. All 150 other SM and trailers are thriving except for maybe one other, Sailor Bill. I'm struggling with him as well but at least he is showing off a few blooms. I got 5 starts from Stickey to see if I have better luck with starting from scratch and propagating from the mother plant. Fingers X'd

Can’t get Sticky to bloom !

Out of the 90 miniature and trailing violets I’ve received from VB this little guy will not bloom for me. The Violet Barn “born on” date is 6/09/20 and I’ve had it for at least 3 months and this sucker will not throw a bud... It’s growing like a little tight shrub. I’ve looked in every nook and cranny in search of a bud but nothing. All of my other trailers and miniatures are blooming non stop or showing buds but not Sticky Wicket. Sticky is being very stubborn. Thus is the 3 *** rating. I’ll review again if Sticky decides to bloom for me.

Sticky Wicket

Received sticky wicket end of may. Still no flowers and very little growth. Has anyone had much like with this violet? Wish The Violet Barn would just replace it. Aren't the plants guaranteed? So far answer from customer service was not acceptable: give it more light; didn't work. Not too happy with The Violet Barn.

Easiest so far!

I love this trailer! As a beginner, it has brought me much encouragement as well as pleasure. It is easy to grow, and also to propagate. It was my first leaf ever to bloom . I highly recommend Sticky Wicket. Having grown up around cricket and the term 'sticky wicket', I was also drawn to its name. Nothing sticky about this one! It's a winner.
