Grow Your Own African Violets

by | Posted June 19th, 2013


Remember that project in grade school where you were given a seed and you placed it in a wet or damp napkin or paper towel and were expected to “water it” (or moisten the towel) and soon you had a plant growing in your paper towel? I can’t remember the point of the project, but it was like, “Whoa! We don’t need to get our hands dirty with dirt! Let’s grow things in a wet piece of paper!” That paper was a plant before, anyway, right?

Well, on a similar note, if you’re looking to do some planting/gardening/cultivating this summer, look no further than this step-by-step video on How to Grow African Violets from Leaf Cuttings.  It’s a fun, easy, summertime activity, and the sun will help them grow even faster and stronger. Try it out for yourself!
