Growing violets from seed was a new endeavor me since I usually propagate from cuttings. But a stray bee in the house gave me a rare opportunity to do it the sloooowww way. This is real mill of the gods stuff. They went from green fuzz (at 8 weeks), to identifiable plants (at 1 year), and now to full grown, blooming African violets (at 2 years). Here is what the last 24 months looked like. The two plants with large leaves in the middle picture are plants started from cuttings. They are eight weeks old. Compare them to the fuzz on the left. Still, it was fun since I didn’t know what plants had been cross pollinated. Nature’s serendipitous accident gave me lovely pink, ruffled violets.
