Went to a local violet show
and it was neat. I liked the violets, and was very impressed by another gessie that was in the show, and there were a couple on the sale table, but for some dumb reason I didn't get one. It was Chirita - sinensis 'Hisako', a well-grown specimen. Now I've got to get one from an online store and pay more. Oh, well.
Anyway, I discovered that you can propagate violets by planting bloom stems. If you have a variable one, and there's a bloom you like, and if the bloom stem has two little leaflets below the bloom, that's one that will grow from the stem, and will have only that bloom on it. Amazing, I had no idea!!
