Plant Features

The Sapphire African Violet is a captivating variety of Saintpaulia, renowned for its striking deep blue or sapphire-colored flowers. This plant forms a compact rosette of lush, dark green leaves that provide a beautiful contrast to the vivid blooms. The velvety texture of the leaves adds to its charm, making it a popular choice for adding a splash of color to indoor spaces. Sapphire African Violets are small and manageable, ideal for brightening up window sills, shelves, or desks.

For troubleshooting, brown leaf edges can be caused by over-fertilization or using water with high fluoride content. Use room temperature water and fertilize sparingly. Inadequate light is a common reason for African Violets not blooming. Position the plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Wilting leaves could be due to either underwatering or overwatering. The soil should be consistently moist but not waterlogged. Be vigilant for pests like aphids and mealybugs. Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if pests are found.
