Violet characteristics

Violets can reach 30 cm in height and their stalk is not very long. Leaves start from the stalk in a rose shape, they are green and they are round and big enough to create a lot of green underneath the flowers. A sort of white hair surface covers both stalk and flowers, giving a sense of velvet-like texture. In the middle there are flowers, small and composed by five purple petals. Some varieties have also pink, white or blue petals.

Violet location

Violets need not much light and it is better to avoid the direct exposure to sunlight. Sun could in fact burn the leaves. Air and wind can also damage the plants. The ideal temperature is between 18 and 25 degrees C. Below 15 degrees, the plants should be moved inside in order to protect them and to let them survive without any problems staying in bloom during the cold seasons. The soil should be soft and it should be mixed with mold, composed by organic rests of plants giving an acid hint to the soil, making it more adaptable to the violets’ needs. In this way, also the drainage of the soil is guaranteed.

    Violet care

    Violet care Usually violets are potted at the end of summer or at the beginning of spring when temperatures are not very high and not even low. The hole should be deep enough to contain all the roots, and after having covered the hole with the remaining soil, you should press it to fix the plant to the ground, watering it as a final step. As a general rule, watering should be constant during spring and summer time, while during winter they can be reduced. The soil should not be wet but not even too dry. It is suggested to water your violets without touching the leaves that could create mold.

    Violet maintenance

    Fertilizing your violets with nitrogen and potassium will improve the blooming potential and a regular growth of the plants. This should be done at least once a month and every three weeks when the weather gets warmer. To reproduce the plant you can use its buds planting them in soil or by creating scions. Violets do not need to be cut or trimmed, just take away dry leaves and flowers, remove damaged buds and your plants will stay healthy.

    Violet parasites

    A problem for your violets is made by watering. In fact, if you do not water them enough or you leave them under too much sunlight exposure, their leaves can turn yellow and dry. Too much water can cause buds to fall and too much humidity can attract fungi and parasites so that you have to use anti-parasites and other solutions to heal your plant.
