Plant Features

The Lavender Bicolor African Violet, known scientifically as Saintpaulia, is a charming houseplant celebrated for its vibrant, bicolor blooms and lush foliage. It typically displays a stunning combination of lavender and white flowers, creating a striking contrast. The leaves are dark green, often with a fuzzy texture, forming a rosette shape around the blooms.

Common problems such as overwatering can lead to root rot, indicated by wilting or yellowing leaves. Let the topsoil dry slightly between waterings. Underwatering, seen as drooping or dry leaves, is less common but can be remedied by consistent watering. Insufficient light can cause leggy growth and fewer blooms, while too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves. Ideally, they prefer bright, indirect light. They are sensitive to temperature changes and drafts. Sudden leaf drop or wilting could be a sign of temperature stress. Low humidity can cause dry leaf edges. If the air is too dry, consider using a humidity tray or grouping with other plants. Watch out for pests like aphids and mealybugs. Treat any infestations promptly with suitable insecticides or natural remedies.
