Hello! Just got my first!
Just got my first African Violet a few weeks ago at a Lowe's for $3. I bought the African Violet potting mix (miracle-gro type) and got that fancy self watering terracotta pot and thought I was good to go! Now I realize that my pot is probably too large, the self-watering feature is probably keeping my potting mix completely soaked all the time and my AV is starting to look kinda droopy. After doing some research I've narrowed down the causes of the leaves drooping and curling down to either transplant shock or too much of a fluctuating temp in the room it is in.
Here's my AV right after I got it and potted it. Since then the flowers are still standing straight up but all the leaves have laid down and are curling down. I'll try and post a recent pic later.
