Lopsided Violets

Posted by judypots New Jersey (My Page) on

Hello growers, I'm delighted to have found this forum. Within the last couple of years I have gotten back into growing violets after a very long hiatus. I now have about 20 plants doing very well in my sunroom. Most of my plants are growing very symetrically. A couple, however, are lopsided, with most of the new leaves growing in one direction, even though I turn the plants regularly. They do not have multiple crowns - just growing lopsided from one crown. They are both blooming quite nicely, as are all the other violets. What to do? Should I repot, placing the crown in the center of the pot and cut off some of the outer leaves that are all growing in the same direction? Thanks for any help. Judy

Hi Judy,
Welcome to the Garden Web. I would repot that lopsided plant and remove enough leaves to make it symmetrical. Where in NJ are you located. Email me.
