Plant Features

The Magenta African Violet (Saintpaulia spp.) is a captivating houseplant known for its striking magenta blossoms and lush, velvety foliage.

A common issue with African Violets is leaf spotting, which can be caused by cold water touching the leaves. To prevent this, water from the bottom or use tepid water. Fertilizing should be done with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to half strength, every four to six weeks during the growing season. It's essential to maintain moderate humidity around the plant, as it doesn't tolerate dry air well. Misting every 2-3 days can help, but be cautious to avoid wetting the leaves directly. As for care level, it falls under 'medium care' — suitable for those with a bit of experience in plant care but not demanding expert-level attention.
