Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

African Violet | Purple Care Guide

Water your African Violets regularly, allowing the surface to dry in between. For best results, place your plant in a bright, warm and steamy environment - a bathroom or kitchen would be great for a happy plant. Direct sunlight results in scorch. Deadhead when necessary to prolong flowering. Repot once root bound into an acrylic plant pot.

    I bought a lovely little African Violet plant from Houseplant at a very reasonable price. It was delivered all the way from sunny Paignton to Redhill in Surrey in good condition. The delivery did go slightly wrong but that was down to the delivery company rather than Houseplant who, when I phoned them, went above and beyond and contacted said company who managed to find my address eventually with a LOT of help from Houseplant. Very helpful service. Highly recommended. 💜💜
