happy already

I have 37 little seedlings that I just transplanted from the seed flat into little 3 oz pots. There is already a visible variety of leaf colors and shapes, with a few having pretty variegated leaves. I am looking forward to seeing the blooms when they come! Some germinated within days, others took a month under the same conditions.

African Violet seeds

It is difficult to find African Violet seeds, and fantasy ones are special. Not hard to germinate. Fantasy are so beautiful, wonder what I will get.

Surprisingly robust and easy to grow

I sowed one packet of these in June 2016, and I now have 11 resulting plants in my home and another 14 that I have given away. So my results were 25 plants from ~50 seeds. This is my first time growing african violets, and I live in a very dry environment. Half of them sprouted after 30 days (they were barely visible) and these guys have been pretty trouble-free ever since. I had them in 2.5" pots in a tray, so I could bottom water, and then transplanted to 5" pots when they were about a year old. That's when they really started blooming like crazy. They are large (to me), some almost 12" across. Everyone who's gotten one says they are easy to grow and doing well, so I definitely recommend sharing. This has been a really fun and surprisingly easy packet of seeds. Get some!

Good variation, minimal germination
Ross from WA wrote on September 14, 2017

with other gesneriad seed mixes I have ended up with an overabundance of plants. Of this mix, I had about 5 germinate and 3 go on to bloom. However of the three I have blooming, one is a very pale ping with dark foliage, another has large dark blue star shaped flower, and the other is pink with purple splotches towards the end of the petals.

Do-able with love and care

Used a heat mat and the Park grow domes. I planted three packets of the little darlings and got about a 25% success rate. Considering it was the first time of growing them from seed, I consider that great. They were fiddly but so much fun.
