Diagnose Problem (pic included)
I purchased the African violet below on clearance from Lowes for $2.50. Some of the leaves are starting to drop and their stems are mushy. What can I do to fix this?
Other tidbits: I placed the violets under a new artifical growlight that gets 20,000 lumens. That's alot of light let me tell you! The leaves in the center of the crown grew toward the light and the ones at the edges started dropping down. The outside leaves did not start breaking off until this morning after I watered them with generic fertilizer.
For fear that the growlight was too powerful, I have since moved them from the light.
I have not repotted the plant, and the soil is damp. (I believe damp soil is typical of violets right?)
Please help this newbie out.
(I have not clue as the what kind this is because it came with no identifying information.)
