    Pink Variegated African Violet Blooming!

    The bud has opened plus a couple more and the bloom is definitely in sharp contrast to the lovely pink foliage! Almost hurts my eyes!

    Don't know about the "fuzz" on the leaves, but I sure got the cat hairs! We can thank Gabby for that contribution!

    New pix of the pinky!



    The contrast between the flower and foliage color always "shocks" me!

    [COLOR="rgb(153, 50, 204)"]I don't know what it's name is but it ought to be "Patriot" all red (pink), white (cream) and blue - definitely blue! like it is. It is a string grower but strange things happen with left cuttings! Small plants can emerge from the central part of the petiole right on top, weird looking and not sure how I will get it to make roots! Will have to set it up and get pictures one of these days.

    If you ever get some rooted cuttings, would love to trade with you for them.

    Ryan,

    AV leaves are very easy to root in water or moist vermiculite. PM me your mailing address and I'll see what I can do.

    (I will sell fresh cutting for $2.00 - enough to cover postage and handling, just not a lot of them at the same time! After all I do have only the one plant!)

    Fertilize it and make babies - unlike hippeastrum the seeds grow quickly and bloom within a year.

    Most people only do the cutting thing because it is so easy to stick a leaf in some water and wait for it to root.

    Still takes space! Even indoors, plus I don't seem to be able to grow the here outside of that 55 gallon terrarium!
