How to turn Twiggy into Dolly Parton
I have 3 standard and 4 mini's all at work with me. I have this one specific AV that is a HD buy; it's leaves and flowers stalks are very leggy. I rescued it from one of my coworkers and it has since bloomed; but it still looks quite spindly. I was given another Violet that has a huge amount of blooms and all of them are sitting right on top of the large chunky leaves. I want this look for my pitiful AV. Do all av's have different body types, or is it because the spindly one has had a rough year. I see all the AV's at HD and various places and they are obviously not well cared for, but how do they get the big leaves and huge blooms?
I'm including pictures; please excuse the quality they were taken with my cell phone. I use Miracle Gro AV food; I know it's not the best so any suggestions on that would be good. And as far as the light source its fluorescent, but I'm not sure of the wattage because I can't take the cover off.
