Blooming but dries before opens

Hi everyone, my AV is blooming loads but the blooms die and dry up before they open. Very new at growing AVs

This will happen if you let your AV soil dry after the buds start to form. Not soaking wet, but keep damp.

Sometimes that happens for a bit after moving it from the greenhouse into your home. Put it inside a jar or bowl, something to raise the humidity around the plant.

Low humidity can sometimes cause bud blast. As mentioned, put in a bowl or on rocks that have water in them. Do not let your violet sit in water but above it.
