More Success with Asian Violets...

Primulina 'Loki' grown by Scott - repeat flowering

Can Asian Violets become common houseplants?

Asian Violets will not gain momentum as houseplants without success by everybody who tries them.  This picture shows the second round of flowering under office conditions by Scott.  And the foliage is perfect. It has nearby window light but mostly office fluorescent light.  The only change has been the addition of a felt wick to aid the watering ---- less frequent, because the ceramic pot has a water reservoir.  

            The previous flowering in December is shown below.

            To reflower under the less than ideal office conditions should move Primulina to the top of the list of easy houseplants.

Primulina 'Loki' flowering five months ago.
