African violets make great easy-to-grow houseplants. These small potted plants love a spot with bright indirect light and moderate temperatures.
African violet flowers come in shades and combinations of pink, purple, and white.
Typically, when you purchase an African violet, it’ll be happy in that container for a while. African violets usually like to be somewhat crowded but need to be repotted about once a year in a lightweight potting media.
Water your African violets when the soil surface is dry to the touch. Don’t let the plant sit in water once it’s absorbed what it can.
To create new plants, just snap off a leaf and nestle it in potting soil.
