Immediate help is needed
Hi, and thank you for looking at my post.
I don't know anything about growing african violets, but I am going to take one over to care for. It is an important plant to me because it was given to my Grandmother as a gift months before she died. Since that time, it's been kept in my house and my mother's been looking after it. After being moved a few times, and been kept "out of the way" because it didn't match the Christmas decor or whatnot, it's been sorrily neglected. It's probably in the wrong soil, a pot that's way too big for it (about 5" diameter by 6" high) and in a very dry hot house. I don't thrive too well in this house either. LOL Anyway, I noticed it was about to be thrown away because it died. The entire plant has shrunk to about 1/3 of it's size. The leaves are very limp and wilted, but I still see some green and purple in them! I think it can be brought back. From the little I read, I made sure the soil was watered and drained, and I put it in a zip lock baggy. It has not had any condensation in the bag which seems odd to me. After a week, I've not noticed any improvement. :( What does anyone think? If anyone would like to see pictures, I'll make that available. Thanks to any advice in advance.
