Here are the parts of an African violet plant . 1. The flower blossoms contain the reproductive parts of a plant.. 1a . The two small yellow sacs in the center of the blossom are called anthers. They contain a fine powdery pollen. The pistil is the female part of the plant. It's sticky end …collects the pollen and sends it down to the ovary.. 2. This bud will develop and become a blossom.. 3. Bloom stalk contains peduncle, pedicel, and cluster of blossoms growing on one stem as a unit. It appears from the juncture of the main stem and the petiole.. 4. Petiole stem that connects leaf blade to the main center stem.. 5. Suckers in the diagram to the right shows where crowns form between the stems. These are encouraged on trailing (multiple crown) varieties. Remove any suckers on single crowned plant varieties. (Sucker's can be rooted in soil for an additional plantlet). 6. Developing seed pod resulting from fertilization of eggs in an ovary. located at the base of the pistil.. 7. Spent blossom this is an old flower that has wilted.. I have placed a PDF file in the related links, this has all the information for you. (MORE)
An African violet likes moist soil with no direct sun and plenty of fertilizer. When watering, blot off any access water on plant. Keep your African violet in a room between 62ËF and 72ËF. Fertilize everytime you water. Violets need at least six to eight hours of daylight a day.
An African violet is a one crowned plant that produces beautiful flowers at around 6 months. An array of colors from yellow, pink,blue-purple, red, rose and much more. There are also trailing types of African violets.
If you have suckers or if you put down a leaf and new small plantlets have emergerd do this; knock out root ball, separate any single crowned plants and plant them into pots. A sucker is a plant that has grown out the side of an original plant but is small, carefully slice it from the mother plant l…eaving at least one inch of stem if possible, plant in soil less mix, moisten then place it in a zip lock baggy so new plant crown can produce roots. This will take about one to two months. Place in good light. (MORE)
This is how you spell violet in Russian:\n. \nÐÐ¸Ð»Ð¾Ð²Ð¾\n. \nI'm not sure how this is pronounced, though. Hope I helped!
Chimeras survive by producing suckers which usually have the same genetic make up but sometimes they sport which means their offrings looks different from the original plant. These are easy and strong growers.
Well, African violets in the wild disperse their seeds with the help from birds and certain insects. African violets as a rule do not self polinate because the seed pods are very hard. Hybridizers make a cut or break into the seed some how to get to the powder.
African violets can be grown from; seeds, by putting down a leaf along with 1/2 inch of stem, or by re-rooting the whole crown (center area where the new leaves grow from) cut off main stem at soil line, remove enough leaves (pop stem and leaf off at the main stem) so there are three rows of leaves… remaining. Now, you will want to keep a length of about three to four inches to plant in the soil, with a knife scrape the main stem of the crown and press it into the soil up to the bottom row of leaves. New roots will grow in about four weeks. Water, place pot and crown into a zip lock bag until well rooted about 2 months. (MORE)
South Africa.. Originally African came from Tanzania Africa. The proper name for them is Saintpaulia. Seeds came from Germany. Armacost & Royston Greenhouse in Los Angeles grew them in the 1940's - 1970's approximately and was the first large greenhouse to grow them.
A miniature violet is recognized by the African violet association to measure not larger than 6 inches in diameter.
This depends on the variety, amount of light, fertilizer, and the plant it receives. Some African violet plants bloom every month and hold their blooms for long periods of time before it whithers and dies which is refered to as a sticktite blossom. Other varieties only bloom two times a year.
African violets are not poisonous to pets if they eat a little but not a daily diet. Warning; Cats love to eat African violets, maybe give your cat some cat grass so it will possibly leave your violets alone.
No, African violets thrive better indoors because of possibilities of insect infestation and they are sensitive to extreme weather changes. There are some outdoors violets but these are not African violets. They produce small purple blossoms, these are wild violets.
Artificial lighting is excellent. Use shop lights from hardware store, the inexpensive type. Purchase the fixture 48in long. Use bulbs, one cool and one warm type. Place six to eight inches above plants, this can be accomplished by attaching fixtures under a shelf. They do make the adjustable wire t…ypes from a hardware store. Also, rubbermade types. Leave lights on 8 to 10 hours a day. Consider these will give off some heat. (MORE)
African violets can reproduce asexually (or "without sex") when you take a cutting and place it in damp soil, allowing it to create a new bud. The new plant is a clone of the original plant, since it has the same genes as the original. When flowers make seeds, this is sexual reproduction that mixes… the genes from two parental plants. Propogation is when you put down a leaf, roots grow from the leaf, then baby plantlets emerge, anywhere from one to 6 or more possibly. African violets do sport which means the new plant and plantlets it might produce can look entirely different than the original leaf or seed. (MORE)

The two small yellow sacs in the center of the blossom are called anthers and they are very hard and do not usually open and scatter - disperse the seeds to self polinate although it is possible. The violet in the wild are different though.
The significance of an African violet is they make a nice hobby for a person. They signify beauty and sweetness.
Propagating and Reproducing more plants Step 1 Pick an African violet plant to reproduce and wash it in warm water. Step 2 Allow the plant to dry thoroughly in a warm spot away from direct sunlight. Step 3 Select a leaf on the plant that is in good condition. Step 4 Inspect the leaf for insect acti…vity by turning it upside down and looking for dimples, webs and discoloration. Step 5 Find the best mature leaf from the second or third row, don't use old leaves because they don't have much life left in them. Cut the stem at least 1/2-inch from the base of the leaf with a sharp tool. Prepare the African violet Leaf Step 1 Place the leaf on a clean , level surface and slice the top 1/4 to 1/3 of the leaf off with a sharp tool. Step 2 Inspect the cut to make sure that it is clean, with no ragged sections that could invite disease. Step 3 Make another cut on the leaf at the stem, this time at about a 45-degree angle to the stem. Step 4 Inspect the cut to make sure that it, too, is clean. Step 5 Keep the prepared leaf in a warm moist place out of the light until ready to plant. Planting Check the African violet leaf every few days for signs of decay. Step 2 Add water to the bag or pot when you can no longer smell a strong earthy smell when you open the plastic. Step 3 Wait four to six weeks before checking the progress of your new plant's roots. If all goes well, you will see very small leaves around the original leaf. When you touch the soil around the new leaves with a toothpick, it will feel firm. Step 4 Prepare the new African violet by placing it in its permanent location. If you started your plant in a bag, transplant it to a 3-inch pot to which you've added African violet potting mix. Step 5 Leave a plastic cover on the plant for a week or two until it gets used to its new surroundings. (MORE)
Yes, please look at the related link from another similar question. You separate them the same way.
Young plants are called plantlets. You can cut a leaf with a 1 1/2 in stem left on and plant it in some African violet soil. In six weeks you will have tiny plantlets. I mean: T he young of the African Violet grows from the parent's ______________. please answer this question !
No, African violets are not endangered, many hobbyists grow them and show them. However, most of the African violets grown by hobbyists are hybrids. On another hand, some subspecies of the Saintpaulia species (the African violets as they were discovered in the nature) are endangered.
To produce seeds, the African violet must be pollinated, either by itself (rarely happens), by insects (happens sometimes) or by human intervention. African violets have both male and female attributes so they can be "self-crossed" or pollinated with pollen of any other African violet. When po…llination works, a seed pod will appear at the base of the flower. You have to wait until the pod grows, and dries (it turns brown). The whole process can take up to 9-10 months. When the seed pod is mature, you only have to gently open it with a sharp knife and get the seeds. One seed pod usually produce at least 500 seeds (seeds are almost as small as dust). (MORE)
All you can do is cut off the worst looking leaves, the good thing is new leaves will grow back in a month or so.
Yes, the African Violet plant does reproduce asexually. Itreproduces through losing its leaves. From there the leaves regrowthe entire plant system.
African violets are grown to show as a single crowned specemin in standard, large, miniature sizes. There are also trailing multiple crowned varieties. African violets are very much, full of liquid.
No, an African violet is not a monocot. Monocot types are: Orchids, iris, and daffodil's. Please look at the related link below.
Violets seeds are very hard and don't very often self pollinate so we need to puncture it with an exacto knife to get to the pollen to pollinate the stigma.
All violet varieties grow at different rates but from the time a new plantlet emerges till it flowers is between 7 to 9 months.
The little hairs are for it's protection against insects that will harm the leaves and plant. African violets leaves are full of water and they are very delicate.

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. Don't fertilize for four  to six  weeks. 6. Be very conservative and sparing with fertilizer until the damage is gone. (MORE)
African Violets have seeds just like many flowers. The seeds are so small they almost look like 1/4 of an Ant. The seeds need moist and warm conditions. When planted the germination times vary by cross and by cultural conditions, but most seeds will germinate within 9 to 60 days, some may take lo…nger. The best things about African violets is that they bloom over and over. A real special flower for sure. (MORE)
Yes, the violets are small, vary from light to dark violet and have a light scent. Very pretty, sweet little flowers. Another answer There are many different types of African violets out there today, the above answer is referring to the wild violets or sometimes called "sweet violets" which gr…ow outside. These violets are indoor house plant African violets. There are many hybridizer's who grow gorgeous varieties, for instance; variegated leaf types with every color you can imagine, almost. There are blooms with a frilly edge, cup or bell shape type of blossom. They have large, small yellow blossoms also. Even, pinwheel blossoms. Here is a great web site. It's "The African Violet Society of America" also internationally known. Please view the related source link below for gorgeous pictures and great information. (MORE)
Toxicity is low and can cause irritation of the mouth and mild nausea if eaten, , to be safe, dont put fingers in the mouth after touching the plant
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 important because city tap water is kept slightly basic or alkaline to prevent pipes and equipment from corroding. So prolonged u…se of tap water will gradually increase the pH of the soil in your containers, and your African violets would lose vigor. (MORE)
Africa has many different languages. Please rephrase your questionwith a specific African language (for example, Swahili, Yoruba,Hausa, Xhosa, Berber...).
you can self pollinate them by taking the pollen from one flowers anther and sticking it to the tip of the stamen of a different flower.
Saintpauliis are clump growers so when becoming too large take theplant out of the pot, gently shake off the soil and loosen theroots, find pieces at the base with roots attached and gently pullit away from it's neighbour teasing the roots out with it. Pot upthe offshoots and you will have new plant…s. (MORE)
It depends where you live. It will not tolerate cold or dampconditions so anywhere unlike it's native climate it will requireprotection.
That is an intriguing kuestion. African violets are succulent houseplant and is used to beautify the indoor garden.the unikness ofthat plant add unikness too to the grower cause it is difficult tomaintain a healthy type of st.paulia plant.
The leaves with its stalk will develop roots when inserted toporous soil like fine sand or black loam soil.
I know one worm with hair that love to eat the leaves and flowersof that plant.it is called higad in tagalog.
