Has anyone tried growing violets, especially viola odorata, indoors? From what I've seen so far, they require four flourescent lights to get enough light. Maybe a tomato set up?
So far, so good. My violets are handling the inside quite well. Inside, temperatures run about 72F to 78F. Outside in the garden, they no like it very much-- it has been weeks of 100+F temperatures there.
Hello! I know this is a super old post but I was wondering how your violets are doing. I wanted to grow some parmas inside but before I dropped a ton of cash shipping them from Cali I thought I'd see how your V. odoratas did. :)
I plant violas, pansies inside every year and place on a table in front of SE facing living room windows. Have tons of blooms all winter until I get tired of cleaning up after them in the spring.
This year I am growing perennial seeds.
I buy plants sometimes but usually I plant seeds in August.
