Hello, my name is Claire, and I’m addicted to African violets!
I’ve learned a lot of valuable information, so I created this site to share it with you, so you can grow healthy and vibrant plants as well.
In fact, I love all houseplants, but there are certain plants that can be really hard to grow (such as the maiden hair fern), but an African violet is not of one them. They are one of my personal favorites, so it drives me nuts when I hear people say they’re hard to grow.
There are just a few things that can go wrong with African violets, but they are simple to remedy. Believe me, they are one of the most rewarding plants to own.
With any houseplant, the key is understanding what it needs, which is why I created this site! My goal is to explain everything I know about growing gorgeous plants without all the stress.
Please enjoy the provided resources and the links to other helpful products. Best of luck to you and your plants!
I am the proud owner of 18 beautiful varieties of houseplants, including 6 fiddle leaf fig plants. Some of my other favorites are the bonsai, Chinese evergreen, pothos, and mother-in-law’s tongue. I live in California (one mile away from my parents) with my husband and our two little girls, ages 1 and 2 (and one on the way!). My hubby and I love riding horses and hiking together. During breakfast with my parents every Friday, my mom and I talk plants; she is in the local garden club and is a master hybrid tea rose grower. My grandmother was an amazing houseplant grower as well, and I still have some of her plants today, which are up to 70 years old!
