African violets (Saintpaulia)      (Price from 10 lt.)

African Violets, also known as Saintpaulia, are great plants for indoor growing because of their beauty and easy care. They do not tolerate cold temperatures. African Violets come in several varieties with blooms in many colors, including blue, pink, red, white, purple and multicolor. Some types also have flowers with fringed edges and double petals. These dainty yet hardy flowering plants look great in hanging baskets, in a large planter with a variety of colors or in a single pot. It can also cope with less light than most other flowering plants, although bright, even illumination remains the primary key to successful flowering. Though the plant needs bright light, too much direct sun can harm it. From late spring through early fall, look for a spot that gets bright light most of the day with little full sun in the afternoon.
