One would hope that if cloning were allowed, the clones would be defined as people. If they are people then they should have the same rights as people who are not cloned. If p…eople who are not cloned have the right to clone themselves then those who are should have it as well. The word "right" can have a legal and an ethical aspect. The question might be talking about whether the practice is legal or whether it is moral. The Legal Profession treats that sort of question as money in the Bank and will vigorously defend you right to your opinion. The Religious Ethics community will likely oppose any such question until they have debated the question for several years.

Feeding the plant with too much fertilizer is the cause of 'fertilizer burn' in African violets [ Saintpaulia spp ]. The visual clues to 'fertilizer burn' are found in the… young leaves in the center of the crown. The leaves bunch together. Their hairs look brown-tipped, from the fertilizer salts crystallizing on the hairs of the leaves. The gardener's responsibility is as follows: 1. Leave the damage as is. African violets are fragile. So the leaves must be allowed to grow out before the damage is removed. 2. Flush the soil with warm water, to remove excess fertilizer. 3. Wash the center crown with warm water, and dry with a very soft tissue. 4. Follow your watering schedule, but with room temperature water, so as to discourage the development of root rot. 5.

African violets prefer soil that is slightly acidic, about pH 6.0 to 6.5. You should use fertilizers made for acid loving plants in order to keep the soil acidic. This is impo…rtant because city tap water is kept slightly basic or alkaline to prevent pipes and equipment from corroding. So prolonged use of tap water will gradually increase the pH of the soil in your containers, and your African violets would lose vigor.
