I was never one to be able to keep African violets alive, let alone getting an African violet to bloom. My grandmother was the master of healthy violets.
Getting African Violet to Bloom
You could go to her house and an African violet would be sitting on the ledge of her kitchen sink or on her desk in the kitchen area. I once asked her how she was able to keep them alive. She told me that the secret was a common household bathroom product. Hydrogen Peroxide. Interesting.
African Violet Water Recipe
1 capful of hydrogen peroxide
1 quart of water
Mix the two together and then water as usual.
That was the big secret? A capful of hydrogen peroxide. Easy and simple.
I got this!
