What am I doing wrong?
I have 12 violets total.
The oldest was purchased at Home Depot approximately spring 2012 for 2.00.
Variegated leaves, flowers regularly.
The last couple months I ended up with 11 new violets.
All are in the same window, 'south,' purchased from three Ebay sellers.
Don't know if I'm over-watering. Yesterday, while working on plants, I inspected violets.
6 or 7 bottom leaves, on different violets were limp, soft-brown, dead.
Other than over-watering, what causes bottom leaves to die? Violets are young, so problem isn't maturity.
Variegated African Violets leaves are fine.
Prior to Monday, days were cold, 'cold for me, 60F' and very cloudy. Cloudy days felt endless.
AV's are grouped together.
Soil is well-draining.
I thought grouping would create a humid-like atmosphere..
Now that I think about it, perhaps grouping was a mistake, since days were dark.
Anyway, does anyone know the reason lower leaves died? Thanks, Toni
