My grandmother had flowering African Violets in her kitchen windows. I loved them as a child. When i got my own apartment, i bought some for myself. The flowers faded & died. I kept trying & i kept killing them. I asked my Grandmother how did she get her African Violets to look so beautiful? And alive. With flowers. She said, “Oh, i just forget about them, then i remember to water them…”
i never gave up. i’ve killed hundreds. 25 years later…this one has flowers! I’ve had this African Violet for about two years & almost lost it, countless times. I saw the flowers today. My Grandmother would be so proud of my tenacity & luck. You know how i did it? I finally gave up & ignored it. Apparently they are quite shy.
