In the last 5 days, I've repotted every single crowned variety of African violet that my friend Nancy owns.
Yes, every pot here is from a plant I repotted--All 106 of them! (not counting the ones that ended up being more than one plant after surgery done whilst repotting!)


  1. Good job! Wish you'd come do mine when I wasn't home, LOL! Jana

  2. Jana if I ever make it to Indiana, I would be happy to repot your AVs!

  3. Looks like m3rma1d got her dirty on! Good job!

  4. I sure did! My nails are brown even after scrubbing hahaha!

  5. 106 Pots!:0 Wow that's alot of repotting!
    Well I just want to thank you for telling me how to clean my violets by giving them a shower. I will definitely try that but I what I did to clean my violets was to brush of the dust of the plant with a soft paint brush and then used a soft cloth with some warm water with a little drop of liquid soap and wiped every leaf down. The reason why I had to do both methods of cleaning the violets was because They were very dirty and was so affraid to clean them, on the count of me worrying that the leaves would damage and die. But I finally gave the courage and finally had them clean and they look very happy and shiny. But next time I will wipe them with a damp cloth with warm soapy water or give them a warm shower under the kitchen sink. Also I finally tried it! On Friday, April 15, 2011 I tried my first attempt at pollinating! I'm hoping I did it right and see signs that seed pods forming real soon. The pollen parent is the purple flowered violet and the seed pod parent is the pink flowered violet. Hopely I will see what they offsprings look like, maybe an unusual looking violet! Well hope you have a great time on your trip and be safe. :) _DakJak
