Plant Features

The Purple Bicolor African Violet is a delightful and attractive variety of Saintpaulia, known for its beautiful, two-toned purple flowers. This plant features lush, velvety leaves forming a compact rosette, from which vibrant purple flowers with varying shades and possibly white or lighter purple edges emerge. Its small size and ability to bloom in low light conditions make it a popular choice for indoor spaces like offices and homes.

For troubleshooting, brown leaf edges can occur due to over-fertilization or fluoride in water. Use room temperature water and avoid overfeeding. Wilting leaves is often a sign of underwatering or overwatering. The soil should be consistently moist but not soggy. Be on the lookout for pests like aphids and mealybugs. Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if pests are detected.
