How to keep me happy and healthy

Sunlight

Place anywhere

African Violet can tolerate being far from a window, but will thrive nearer to a light source.

Water

Water semi-frequently

African Violet can withstand levels of low water availability for a few days.

Try our intelligent assistant Greg for personalized watering reminders and to avoid over-watering or under-watering.

Nutrients

Repot after substantial growth

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

After your african violet has more than doubled in size, you should repot it to replenish its nutrients.
