African Violet - Lavender


Highly coveted by worldwide collectors, African Violets are a classic cult favorite when it comes to houseplants. Their size is extremely manageable, and the easy-care plants last for years. With stunning blooms, these are showstoppers in any collection, no matter what.

African violets hail from the foggy cloud forests of eastern tropical Africa. There are 6-20 true species in the Saintpaulias genus, named after Baron Walter von Saint Paul-Illaire, who sent seeds from Tanzania back to his botanist father in Germany. Hundreds of sub-species and hybrids have been bred by collectors, so there are an astonishing array of flower types and colors available online, or from flower show vendors.

This plant is considered to be NON-TOXIC to dogs and cats.

Botanical Name:  Saintpaulia


Bright, indirect light. 


Regularly, when soil is dry. Bottom watering recommended because they do not like to get their leaves wet. 

Pot & Soil: 

Use an African Violet soil mix due to their specific needs. We do not recommend repotting before at least 30 days after you receive your plant from Get Rootsy.
