African Violes HELP!!!

raytjkSeptember 9, 2007


I have rooted several leaves from my 3 african violets. I have some problems. 1st, all the rooted leaves died. Will I get new growth?

Also. I had to repot 2 of them and you know, it could destroy them..........will I get growth back?

I could not believe how much trauma happened when I did...........

I thank anyone who could answer, for your time.

How did you root your African Violets? What medium did you use?

I use vermiculite and perlite, and I never have any damage to the roots.

Good luck.

raytjk, you should come join us over on the african violet forum. All of us trying to propagate AVs would appreciate seeing what some of the gurus over there have to say to your questions.
