My African violet has not bloomed in over a year.

Old leaves die off, new ones keep coming, but no flowers. I do feed it every couple of months.

    Years ago my mom helped take care of a lady and her brother who were in their 90's. She had the most wonderful African Violets. The only thing that she did what something that I had never heard of before. My mom would occasionally buy her a small package of tobacco and she would steep it like tea and use it to water her plants occasionally instead of plain water. Check out this article I found. This site is good for lots of articles on any plant you have or want.
    I hope this helps! Have a great Holiday season!

    I grew two african violets under the florscent lights under my upper cabinets in the kitchen....lights were on all day. Bloomed constantly. Were in self watering pots.

    This maybe because of soil needs to be changed, or have they been moved, and out of the sun? This makes a huge diff. Also, with the seasons changing, the sun is more on the southern atlas, so it may not be getting the direct sun, as before. Check your windows, and see if the sun comes in that window, thru out the day, and you may have to move your plants, after you repot them, with good soil. Make sure they are getting a good drink of water, also, on a pattern of days. I always water my 50 violets on Mon, and Tues. I have a window, that gets the sun in the morn, and at the afternoon time as well. At the present, we have 6 in blossom. Do not over water them, but keep them on a reg. schedule of water. Do write back, if you have more questions, ok? I will do my best, to help you. Remember too, this is winter, and some plants do not bloom in winter, but mine don't care. I have some that won't stop blooming, because they are in the light. Make sure you keep these in the sunshine, ok? Judy.
