Violet leaves are turning yellow

dinabear(z7AL)March 8, 2005

I am pretty new to having african violets. I am watering them when they get dry and the leaves are turning yellow. Can someone help me with this ? I do not want to kill them.

Dina, check the FAQ on the main forum page; there's all kinds of cultural info so you can see what you're doing wrong.

However, I hope you're not letting the plants get *really* dry before watering. They don't like that.

Also, check the link below; Rachel's site is awesome.

Good luck.

Hi Dina, Korina is right. When I first started with AV's I let thwem get completely dry before watering. I since learned to keep them moist by wicking. Hope this helps ellie

I keep my violets in the window where they get enough light. I have only noticed yellow leaves with lack of. Hope this helps. Mine do bloom all year round.
