African Violets otherwise known as Saint Paulia originate from East Africa. They are blooming beautiful and a very pretty flower. They are also a dust magnet so be sure to keep their leaves free of debris.
You will notice that the flowers cluster in rosettes and they have a slightly hairy appearance and texture.
You will also find that they are best suited to a north facing window and out of direct sunlight. They also like a constant temperature between 68 and 75 degrees. When watering, do not directly water the leaves. Instead water close to the roots.
