These Ain't Yer Grandma's African Violets!
You are so lucky!I would have bought the whole place!
Yes indeed VioletTiger I was very lucky. I got 2 new plants as a gift from my sweet friend Nancy Hayes!
These pictures are just absolutely amazing! :DVery excellent work M3rma1d. And...Oh my god look all the pretty violets every color, every different bloom, every different size, just wow what a variety! And I definitely agree with VioletTiger, wish I could have each and every one of them to collect and take care of. They are just lovely plants. WellI hope you have a fun and safe trip! :) Upload lots of pictures of your adventure and of course violets!
Dakjak--Thanks! I also took a little video while we were there, I'll put it up soon!
And what about the tell-tale spilled pollen on Marina, the white star with the deep blue thumbprints?
Anonymous--In a large greenhouse growing operation like this, thrips are pretty hard to avoid. Always take flowers off new purchases and isolate from the rest of your collection.
