Dora, the Pixie Blue crown you sent me is doing great. I noticed this morning it has put out a bloom bud. This was my first attempt at starting a violet from a crown.

Congratulations !

Hi loveviolets,

Graduations! That's the nice thing about trailing violets. They get big enough and one can propagate crown cuttings, which are much easier than propagating leaf cuttings. And it is much quicker too.

I'm glad to hear that you are being rewarded with a bloom bud. I really like Pixie Blue. It's my favorite African violet!


RE: Pixie Blue Crown Bloom

Yesterday was my 60th Birthday and as I began my day, I decided to enjoy seeing all my violets. As I began turning on their lights, I spied a beautiful bloom. Pixie Blue was displaying a beautiful bloom. This was the best present I could have received. Thanks to you Dora for sending me the crown.

RE: Pixie Blue Crown

this post made my day.

Here's to your best year yet......Happy Birthday!


RE: Pixie Blue Crown blooms

This evening I spotted more blooms coming. I am really proud of the plant as this is the first time i tried growing one from a crown.
