Not sure how many folk out there are growing African Violets, but thought I might share what I have learned over the 28 years of growing them in this Blog Series. They really are a pretty simple plant to grow indoors once you get the hang of them. I am hoping to track the growth of these three new Violets as well as the two Tea Cup Violets.
