Size of pots
Hi I am so, so very new to African Violets. I have a fundamental
very basic question. I just bought 6 no id. violets I was told that i should measure the width across the leaves and use a pot 1/3 the size. Is that correct? All my plants measure about 8 inches. So a 3 in pot would be right? I have put them in a 3 in. terracotta pot but they seem to be crowded. I removed all the potting soil they came in but maybe i am used to other plants that like more room for their roots. Please let me know if i have potted correctly. I have set them in saucers of room temp. water and watered from the bottom. I may never be anymore than a novice African violet lover but i do want to get this right.
Ann so ut
