41. African Violets As Houseplants
Growing and blooming African violet plants, propagation, pests and care
African Violets

African Violet Plants are among the most popular, widely grown and beloved houseplants in the world.
Saintpaulia is the scientific name for this tropical plant which belongs to the gesneriad family and was first discovered in the wilds in 1892. Propagation and extensive hybridization has brought these charming plants a long way from the simple blue flowers of their original species.
Other than the traditional solid green, violet plants are now available with variegated foliage. Blossom colors range from pure white to vibrant red and all possible shades in between, including yellow. In addition to single, bloom may be double, ruffled, spotted or bicolor. There are also trailing varieties as well as miniatures that grow and bloom in a one inch pot.
Care and Requirements
Both species and hybrid violet plants are ideal houseplants because they thrive in conditions found in most homes. Temperature requirements are 60 to 80 degrees with average humidity. They need good light, but not direct sunlight. You can grow them on a windowsill or even under lights. Keep in mind that African violet plants need a period of about eight hours of total darkness at night in order to initiate flower buds and bloom. So don't keep them in the kitchen if you have a habit of raiding the icebox at night.
Plants enjoy being somewhat pot bound. When repotting, a good rule of thumb is to use a squat container about one third the size of the diameter of the plant from leaf to leaf.

    African Violets
    African violets are a popular and easy to grow flowering houseplant. They tend to bloom on and off throughout the entire year, so they are a colorful addition to any house. African violets do best when they are placed in a well lit area. In the winter, a south or west facing window is good for them; in the summer, they need to be moved into an east or north window where they won’t get too hot. They need to be kept at about 60° -70°. They don’t like to be chilled so make sure that there are no drafts in the growing location. African Violets like to have their soil kept moist but not too wet. When watering them, make sure that you don’t get water on their leaves, water on the leaves can cause brown spots. They can be fertilized regularly with a weak solution of fertilizer or once every month with a half strength fertilizer.

History and Use The African Violet, Saintpaulia ionantha , is among the most popular of house plants with wholesale sales in 1995 exceeding 25 million dollars. This popularity is due to its ability to thrive under conditions commonly found in most homes, and its usefulness as a specimen plant, center piece, or feature in dish gardens. Since its introduction into the United States in 1894, hundreds of African Violet cultivars have been developed that provide a wide range of flower colors, foliage types, and plant sizes. Though many Americans purchase African Violets as an impulse item, there are dedicated enthusiasts who grow, breed, and show them. African Violets were originally discovered in 1892 in two separate locations of northeast Tanga in Eastern Africa by Baron Walter von Saint Paul, then governor of German East Africa. Saint Paul sent either plants or seed to his father in Germany where they quickly became popular in European Horticultural circles. Herman Wendlan, a prominent botanist at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Herrenhausen Germany, gave the genus name Saintpaulia in honor of its discoverer, and the two species

African Violets
African violets with their perky flowers and attractive rosette form have long been a favorite houseplant. Their Latin name, Saintpaulia, is in honor of their discoverer Baron Walter von Saint Paul who brought them over from Africa. Growing African violets quickly became a popular hobby. Theyre no less popular today and many African violet clubs and organizations exist around the world.
African violets commonly have oval leaves but new varieties have been developed that have lobed, ruffled or even variegated leaves. There are even trailing varieties of African violets. The common colors of the flowers are purple, blue, pink or white but there are yellow and multi-colored blooms as well. African violet flowers can be single or double. But no matter what the variety, they all require the same care.
Dont place them be in direct sunlight. An east or north window is best. They must be protected from drafts as well. Water your African violets with tap water that has been left to stand overnight. This allows any chlorine or fluoride to dissipate and the water to come to room temperature. Wait until the top of the soil is dry before watering from the bottom. When the top of the soil is damp again remove the rest of the water.
They do best in shallow pots with a diameter that is less than that of the plant. This allows the leaves to extend over the rim of the pot. This is similar to their native environment where they are found growing in rocky crevices near water. You can use either clay or plastic pots. Generally the largest pot you will need will be one with a 6 diameter. Use a deep saucer or if you have more than one African violet you could use a deep tray or similar container to hold them. If your home is too dry you will need to provide extra humidity. A container of water nearby should be sufficient.

HOME BLOOMIN GARDEN CENTRE Store Hours Current Specials ... BLOOMIN GARDEN CENTRE AFRICAN VIOLETS African violets have numerous merits as house plants. They are not only beautiful, but have long lasting flowers produced several times a year, take up a minimum amount of space, and require relatively low light levels. Provided with the type of care described below, these popular plants will thrive as well for the beginner as for the expert. Plant Selection When purchasing an African violet, select a plant which has a single crown. The leaves should be growing symmetrically, like the spokes of a wheel. Light African violets grow best when provided with indirect sunlight. A simple way to measure light intensity is by holding your hand about 4 inches above the plant. If a slight shadow is cast over the specimen, it is probably receiving sufficient light. When leafstalks become elongated the plants bloom sparingly, light intensity is probably too low. If leaves become faded or more flaccid than normal, plants may be receiving too much light. African violets which have dark green foliage and dark colored flowers usually tolerate more light than those with light colored leaves and flowers. Many growers have great success raising violets under fluorescent lights. Plants are usually placed 6 to 12 inches beneath a 2 or 4 tube fixture, 4 feet long, which is fitted with 40 watt tubes. There are several excellent books available on light gardening which describe this method of raising African violets in detail.
