How to Grow African Violets

Good light is important for abundant blooms but keep plants out of direct sunlight. The miniature and semi-miniature varieties are best potted into 8cm pots with a good African Violet compost (a mixture of 50% peat based compost, 25% vermiculite, 25% perlite). Water from underneath but only water when the surface of the compost is dry to the touch. The ideal temperature range is 18-25C (65-80F) for good growth. Once the plants are established (6-8 weeks of active growth), feed with a high potash slow release fertiliser once every six weeks. Remove dead flowers and stems to encourage fresh growth.
