I'm planning on getting another violet. For awhile I had about 50. Yes, I know that's waaaaaaaay too many. I started a bunch of leaves and they all sprouted. I was giving the darn plants to everyone and pretty soon people were avoiding me like they do people that grow zucchini.One day I got up and said "no more" and out they all went. I'm thinking one larger pot with two or three violets would be nice.
What fun, you are the "violet lady"!!! I've always loved violets. Whey I was in Jr. High I was given a little violet candle holder. I was hooked. I decided to decorate my room in purple and began collecting china painted with violets. I have way too many and I'm getting ready to get rid of most of them. I'm think about giving a violet tea party and giving each guest with a cup and saucer as a party favor.What do you feed your violets. I use VF-11 . That stuff is amazing. I've use it on absolutely everything for years.
I have no luck with violets, but love them. Yours are lovely.
I think they are the easiest house plants there are. When I forget to water them for a week or two, the forgive me. When I forget to feed them, they just just stick out their pretty little tongues and quit blooming for a while. When I put them in dark rooms, they don't seem to mind. I love them, too. You should try again, they are so forgiving. Do try using the VF-11 mentioned in my reply to Adrienne, above. It works miracles on everything.
VF is what I used, too. Pondside - My grandma had beautiful violet - the best I've ever seen. She would give them to my mom and they promptly die. Then my mom became a grandma and her violets went wild. She would give them to me and they would die. Then my stepson had his first child making me a sort of "quasi" grandma. My violets flourished. I think there's a connection.
That is so funny!I don't have any grandchildren - unless you count my "grand-dogs".
Priscilla, I've had good luck with violets as well. Love the white container!
