Plant Features

The Periwinkle African Violet, another delightful variety of Saintpaulia, is admired for its vibrant periwinkle-blue flowers, often accentuated with a white or yellow center. This plant has a lush, rosette-forming growth habit with soft, fuzzy leaves, making it a favored choice for indoor plant enthusiasts. Its compact size and attractive blooms make it a popular choice for adding a splash of color to indoor spaces.

For troubleshooting, if leaves are turning yellow or brown, this can indicate overwatering, poor drainage, or exposure to cold drafts. Ensure the plant is in a well-draining pot and kept away from cold windows or vents. Fuzzy mold on soil or leaves is a sign of overwatering and poor air circulation. Reduce watering frequency and ensure the plant is in a well-ventilated area.

Lack of flowering is often due to insufficient light. Place the plant in a location where it receives bright, indirect sunlight. Leggy or sparse growth can occur when the plant is not receiving enough light. Move it to a brighter location but avoid direct sunlight, which can harm the leaves.
