Saintpaulia is one of the most reliable indoor plants to start learning what it takes to encourage plants to bloom. These little plants are so undemanding but produce such beautiful and delicate flowers that just last and last. They are one of the few plants that will flower almost all year round if kept in the right conditions.

Our African Violets come in a range of colours from blue to purple and pink.

How to care for your African Violet

Native habitat

Native to Eastern tropical Africa.

Light and position in the home

Although your African violet will thank you for bright light it does not enjoy direct sunlight. An East or West-facing window is ideal in summer.

Watering and humidity

Keep soil moist, but allow the surface to dry out a little between watering. Try to ensure that the water is room temperature, as cold water can chill and mark the leaves. Your Saintpaulia also prefers a relatively humid environment.
