first time trying to start baby violets - looks like i was successful. there were three leaves in here but one rotted on top. so there are two baby leaves amongst the old leaf part..

It'll likely develop a cluster if you wait on them.

RE: babies starting

i think this about two months, maybe 6 weeks, i didn't label when i started the leaves... i tried tow methods, i put these directly in dirt, bagged them and put them in my terrarium. i also started one or two in water and then put them in dirt once roots formed. those ones i am still waiting for babies to start.

The ones that had water roots will have to make new roots in soil, so they will take longer.
