The popularity of the African violet is largely due to its ability to thrive indoors.
African violets provide dazzling decoration to tabletops and windows.
African violet (Saintpaulia) is one of those rare house plants that will flower continuously all year long and add color and cheer to any area you put it.
In fact, African violets are some of the easiest indoor plants to grow once you are aware of a couple of their very simple requirements.
They naturally like filtered light and temperatures that most houses have on a year-round basis. Also, the soil you use must have excellent drainage.
There is no reason you can’t have a house full of colorful, velvety, African violets for years to come.
African violets are very satisfying to have around because they have such a lush appearance with their velvety leaves and glittering flowers.
So if you have a record of killing houseplants, give it one more try with an African violet!
