I hope you will share some tips. These are beautiful! I have one right now I did start it from a leaf someone gave me at the nursery so I don't even know what color its flower is suppose to be and I am only hoping I will see one someday.

Ferne,
I started some from leaves a few years ago also. It takes a while for them to get big enough to bloom. My suggestion is to use the miracle grow soil for african violets. I swear by it. I also use the shultz violet food you mix with water. I water with it everytime.(-:

So jealous! I have a wonderful, green lush and big violet, but no blooms. :(

I love those deep cherry-red ones but they're all lovely. You must have the perfect indoor setting for them. Not to mention a very green thumb. Gorgeous.

Nice collection! I have a couple in terrariums (small terrariums). Lots of leaves, but no flowers. What's your secret?
