my Mini's after the cleanup and divisions

A friend gave me over 50 of her AV's last week. I spend this week cleaning and dividing them and new soil. Now there are closer to 200 with several leaves put out to root . Anything I need to do or not do. All advise is welcome....

Here is a link that might be useful: all of the division after completion

I think you're looking good! I always put my divisions under a dome until I am sure they have developed a good root system and are growing. I can't see your soil-make sure it's light and go easy on the fertilizer until you are sure they are growing. And-just out of curiosity, why did your friend give you 50 violets?

As she put it,,, she's old enough and "over" having so many. she kept about half a dozen or so.
I have a humidifier and an air purifying fan ( air is pulled through a wet wick) to keep the air moist and moving.
I did use a light soil actually it is a seed starting mix just barely damp not wet.
I can easily check them tray by tray and not actually disturb them.

My friend has several other plants that she will be passing along to me as well. I am very excited.

You certainly were blessed. And what wonderful trays. They all look really good. Some look really white, I would give those some epsom salts to green them up some. They need the green to survive. Do a search on this forum or the web on using epsom in your watering.
