African violets are among the world’s most popular flowering houseplant. I can recall visiting my father’s Aunt Katy and seeing her collection of beautiful violets. I guess that is why I think that African violets, also called Saintpaulia, are only for those with a “green thumb.”
But we all can nurture a shelf full of violets by following a few basic steps. We really don’t need a green thumb; we need a plan of basic care for these lovely plants.
