Plant Features

The Pearl White African Violet, a variety of Saintpaulia, is a charming and popular houseplant noted for its lush, velvet-like leaves and stunning white blossoms that often have a hint of pale pink or blue. The flowers resemble pearls, giving the plant its name. African Violets are compact, making them ideal for small spaces such as window sills or desktops.

When troubleshooting, over-watering or water on leaves can cause these issues. Water the soil directly, avoiding the leaves, and ensure good drainage. If the Pearl White African Violet is not producing blooms, that means there is insufficient lighting - is a common reason for lack of flowers. Place the plant in a brighter location with indirect light. Yellowing leaves could be due to overwatering, poor drainage, or nutrient deficiency. Adjust your watering schedule and consider a balanced fertilizer. Leggy growth is typically a sign of too little light. Move your African Violet to a brighter spot, but avoid direct sunlight which can scorch the leaves.
