Last weekend, when Kara and Adam came for my birthday party, she brought my gift. Part of it was two miniature African Violets. I've got several regular-sized ones and while everyone says they're very easy to grow, my previous history with them belies that. However, in the last year, I've been quite successful with them, so Kara just added to my collection in a small way (pun intended).
They came in teeny tiny pots set in a wicking water reservoir. I don't normally keep my avies as wet as these stay, so I kind of wonder how this is going to work. They look good now and I have no idea how long they've been in this arrangement - probably long enough to kill them if it were going to - so maybe my fears are unfounded.
I checked online to see if I needed to do anything special in the way of caring for them and Rob's Violets says to treat them no differently than I would my other African Violets, other than to never pot them in anything larger than a 2½" container. They will never grow to be any bigger than 6".
Aren't they cute?
