from Africa, African Violets are probably
the best known flowering house plants. African
violets feature velvety leaves arranged
in a circular pattern, with blooms forming
at the crown. There are hundreds of different
varieties of African violets available featuring
differently colored flowers, and differently
variegated flowers and leaves. In order
to initiate blooming, make sure your African
violet gets proper light. Also, African
violets bloom best when slightly pot bound.
To keep your African violet looking its
best, remove dead flowers and leaves.
