Authors: H.C. Harrison, M.F. Heimann, P.J. Pellitteri, and Johanna Oosterwyk

You can growAfrican violets successfully in your home if you provide moisture, temperature, and light conditions similar to those under which the plants grow naturally. This isn’t as difficult as you may think, even though the African violet comes from the coastal and mountain regions of East Africa.

In homes we can control heat, light, and moisture to give our African violets “natural” growing conditions. This fact sheet will show you how (4 pages; 2014).
