Species, Water, Fertilizer ETC
I am going to buy two new violets: a grandifolia species and a variegated Buckeye series. Are these more difficult than the regular unvariegated AV? Two questions: Can I put these plants (variegated/species) together in the same light? I have read in the forums that both require less light than hybrid unvariegated. I also read about fish oil and Epsom salts in water. I use commercial fertilizer but is this mix as good? What proportions of each? Is it alternated with other fertilizers? BTW: Thank you Diane for telling me about "drop" on species AV's. I looked it up on a forum thread. The flowers drop quickly. I can live with it as I really like the simplicity of species violets. Any advice about Grandifolia and variegated appreciated!
