African violet

The African Violet is a simple hardy plant that can be kept by everyone. This plant does not stays quite small in size and is suitable for a small pot.

Velutina Variety

However, it should be kept out of rain though. When watering, never let water fall onto its leaves. The leaves will rot. I usually leave a small empty area in the pot for watering.

The soil should be always moist and the leaves tending upwards.
