Miniature African Violets

     When full grown these are only 6 - 8" across. They require the same treatment a standard sized violets, but need somewhat brighter light, more frequent repotting, and extra care to keep the suckers groomed off. Repot minis every 4 to 5 months, but don’t use a pot larger than 2 1/2" in diameter. At repot time minis benefit from having an outer row or two of leaves removed, the soil replaced, and being set down in a clean pot with a new wick. This gives them the necessary boost to keep them almost always forming new buds.
