Saintpaulia Hovariagata 'African Violet'

Dhs. 120.00

Streptocarpus sect. Saintpaulia Hovariagata, commonly known as variegated African Violet, is a small and bushy plant with soft, round leaves, which are green with pastel pink variegation. It produces pink flowers multiple times a year, which last for several weeks. African violets are a true classic among the flowering houseplants, but they are much more rarely seen in their variegated form. Soft leaves, beautiful variegation and gorgeous flowers.

These plants do not like their leaves to get wet, because they are covered in small, transparent hair, which makes them so soft. Since it is hard to water it from the top without wetting the delicate, bushy leaves, it is best to bottom-water your African violet and refrain from misting.

This plant is approximately 15cm tall and it comes in a 12cm  plastic nursery pot.

Care Tips:

Light: bright, indirect light, no direct sunlight

Water: keep the soil moist, but never soggy, bottom watering 

Humidity: high but do not mist the plant as the plant doesnt like it and it can cause fungal infection

Soil: well-draining, likes to be pot-bound, helps the plant to bloom
