Tropical African Violet Plants

avrican violet plants

African Violet Plants are common house plants that people wouldn't think of then being a tropical rainforest plant, but they are.

The tropical violet flower, purple violet flowers or as we think of them as common African violet plants, were originally from the Eastern Arc Mountains in the African rain forest.

Many, many, many, many, years ago most of the African continent started to change from a richly forested pan-tropical belt, to what is now known for being a dry savannah or very desert like.

So many tropical plants and trees originated from Africa which was mostly rainforest with lush vegetation and rare, beautiful and colorful plants and flowers such as the purple violet flowers.

People get confused how tropical plants could come from such a baron country, but unfortunately times have changed these incredible tropical biomes or have destroyed them.

Luckily there are still a few jungles and rainforest left in Africa still producing unique and beautiful flowers , one of them being the Congo and jungles of the Gombe Game Reserve in Africa, which some of you have heard of and where the famous and beautiful gorillas and Chimpanzees live that were studied by The Great Conservationist Jane Goodall.

How To Grow African Violets and Growing African Violets Indoors

Light: Moderate to bright, indirect, indoor light. They are a low light house plant which means no direct sunlight.

Watering: Keep soil moist to dry, and allow soil around roots to dry out before watering to encourage blooming. Water from the bottom with room temperature water by placing the plastic grower's pot in water, and allowing the plant to absorb the water (not more than 30 minutes).

Avoid getting water on the leaves as this can cause spotting damage. For best results, use violet plant food as directed.

Tips: Pinch off spent blossoms and blossom stems to encourage development of new blooms. Place plants away from floor vents, fans, or entrance doors to avoid air drafts and bursts of cold air.
