Just a Moment – Forty

Several weeks ago I posted about my houseplant that had mealybugs.  I was especially concerned about treating the African violets, as they do not like their leaves being wet and I had to really soak the plant with Neem oil spray.  Well, the worst offender – the one with the most evidence of mealybugs – is beginning to bloom!  I guess it is happy.

It really needs dividing and repotting.  I had the best African violet pots in Arizona but I have not been able to find similar here, and I’ve not been happy with what I can find.  I’ve been reading a lot about African violet care and propagation and have actually had success starting new plants from leaves, both in planting medium and rooting in water.  It’s so exciting!

  1. Neem oil? That’s good to know.

    Congratulations on your successful propagation and the new flowers.

    I really enjoy seeing these posts.
