Can I revive my African Violet?
Hi everyone - I'm new to the forum but am hoping someone can please help me! I have an African Violet that I'm afraid is beyond hope but I would really like to save - my mom gave it to me when I got married almost three years ago and in the beginning I was great about caring for it. But I have to admit that I have been completely neglectful lately and when I looked at it the other day all of the leaves were dead (I know, I know - I am bad!!). My husband and I are starting to get into plants and I have a new-found respect for this African Violet and the motivation to bring it back and was hoping for some advice if it's at all possible. My husband suggested that I take all the dead leaves off so that the roots could heal, so I did that. I've given it water for the past few days as well. Also I have it in a clay pot sitting on a windowsill so that it gets sunlight. If anyone has any advice on what I can do to be a good plant-mother to this violet, I would really appreciate it. I know there's a chance I'll have to start fresh with a new one but I'd love to try saving this one first as it has sentimental value. Thank you so much!!
