sinningia leaves pointing upwards
So I have been growing african violets in south facing windows in my apartment for over 6 months now and they seem to be happy. I think since there is a screen, they aren't getting as much light as I think they are so without shades or blinds they are doing very well.
I recently bought a Sinningia "Peridots Darth Vader" plant from the violet barn, and I put it in the same situation as my african violets since it said they require the same care. However, after a little over a month, the leaves have been growing in almost vertically upwards.
I want to double check, but this means this plant is not getting enough light correct? I have put it on a bunch of boxes today so that it reaches the part of the window with no screen. I'm hoping without the screen it will get more light and the leaves will start growing flat again. Does this sound like the right thing to do? Or is there another reason that the Sinningia will have its leaves growing straight upwards?
