2 Ways to Root African Violets From Leaf Cuttings
Most indoor plants are foliage plants, but African Violets bloom all the time and come in so many colors! They are so easy to grow, in fact, you can root a new plant easily from a single leaf cutting!
I tried 2 ways to do this with about 10 leaf cutting, and got 100% success! Which means...10 new plants! OMG!
Find a healthy leaf, use a clean and sharp knife to slice it off at the base.
First method is to submerge the base of leaves in clean, room temp water.
the second one is to root them in soil. Ready to start your indoor African Violet garden? Check out more details and comparisons of these 2 methods at the link here! https://www.apieceofrainbow.com/grow-african-violet/

I'm gonna try with mine.
Can also root an impatient plant by breaking stem off and bring in and root in glass of water. Roots very quickly. Just add to a lot outside.
Does anyone have luck with Christmas cactus plants? I've had this plant for 5-7 yrs and though it's still alive, it's never flowered.
Does anyone know why a hydrangea won't bloom? I have had one in my front front flowerbed for about 6 yrs now. I stopped cutting it back because I read I could be cutting off the buds for the following year. I have another in a different bed and its blooming.
Anyone have any luck on replanting aloe Vera plants?
