African violets like a bright spot close to a window but not any direct sunlight. Light affects flowering. African violet plants with dark green foliage need higher light levels and plants with pale or medium green foliage need less light. Turn pots regularly to keep flowers from reaching for the light.
Water & Soil
The African Violet likes well-draining soil. A mix of peat moss, vermiculite, and perlite in equal parts.
African violet plants are picky about water, so take extra care of African violets when watering. Water with lukewarm or tepid water that was allowed to stand for 48 hours. Water at the base and never splash the foliage with water; just a drop can cause foliar spots and damage. Water when the soil feels less moist to the touch. Never let growing African violets stand in water or completely dry out.
Note: Our plants are sold in nursery pots unless specified differently. Our nursery pots vary in colour, and will be either black, white, green, or terracotta.
