Unusual early bloom?

Imagine my surprise when the tiny new plants from the mother leaf produced a bloom, and more on the way! This is a standard pink NOID that you would get from a grocery store. Sorry the photo is sideways...I don't know how to make it upright.

I've had this happen a lot recently especially with my Russians. Rather exciting, isn't it, having a violet so eager to grow!


RE: Unusual early bloom?

They say to remove early blooms to give the plant more energy to grow

RE: Unusual early bloom?

Linda, it happens sometimes. Yes, it's a good idea to remove the blooms and let the babies grow. Actually, I remove the first blooms from the starter when I see they match the type description because the little plant needs to grow more leafs and then it will have more flowers.
