Terrarium + african violet = perfect fit

March 9, 2011

Come to think of it, African violets are perfect for humid terrarium environments. And these, created by Beverly Turner at M & M Nursery are too cute. Morning sun is what African violets like, and a weak feed during the bloom season. But be careful you don’t burn them as a glass terrarium in direct sun will be intensified.

When the plants stop blooming you’ll want to give them a rest for a few months, then start feeding again to prompt blooms. Trick of the trade for getting African violets to bloom again, once they’ve stopped? A pinch of Epsom salts watered in.

And don’t over water – easy to do because African violets look like they like a lot. But in fact, do better when they are allowed to get near-dry between watering.
