How to Grow African Violets by Carolyn Rector
Have you been searching for a house plant that will give you flowers throughout the year, that will not outgrow its bounds, and that will grow happily in the same temperature and humidity ranges that you, too, prefer?
Then you ought to consider growing African violets in your home.
Not only do African violets satisfy the foregoing requirements, but they are also available in a great variety of colors, foliage types, and styles of flowers so that there is always something new to keep your interest and enthusiasm going. Furthermore, they can be used indoors in many ways (see pages 22-29), including -in addition to the traditional plant displays at windows - groupings under fluorescent lights in any part of any room.
Along with all these advantages, they are inexpensive - and so easy to propagate that in no time at all you can grow enough new plants to more than satisfy your own needs and those of your friends as well.
