Plant Features

The Violet White Trimmed African Violet is a charming and attractive houseplant, part of the Saintpaulia genus, celebrated for its lovely violet flowers with elegant white edges. This variety features a compact rosette of dark green, soft, velvety leaves that create a lush backdrop for the vibrant, bicolor blooms. African Violets are small and manageable, ideal for adding a touch of color to indoor spaces like windowsills, shelves, or office desks.

For troubleshooting, brown leaf edges can be caused by over-fertilization or water containing high levels of fluoride or chlorine. Use room temperature water and fertilize sparingly. Inadequate light is a common reason for African Violets not blooming. Place 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 detected.
