March 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 136

What is the most fulfilling hobby in the world? What can you break off a piece of and grow many plants from it? What gives you a relaxing and satisfying feeling about life?

The answer to all these questions is growing African Violets.

Imagine yourself nurturing a growing plant that rewards you with blooms of many colors and shapes. Imagine yourself discovering small buds within the crown of a plant and anxiously waiting for them to open and reveal their magical glistening and shimmering color.

This hobby can be shared among growers. Imagine you friends when they admire your plants saying "I wish I had one that looks like that". All you have to do is give them a leaf or sucker with growing instructions and reassure them that they can have a plant just like yours.

Image being a member of an international Society-The African Violet Society of America. Imagine receiving a beautiful magazine with marvelous pictures and packed full of information about your African violet hobby.

Image a beautiful show room full of outstanding specimens of African Violets and their relatives, You may be the recipient of a blue ribbon and a cash award.. You may even receive the Best in Show award which is a beautiful Rosette. If you enter three plants of the same size you may receive the Best Collection award.

Someday down the road, you may decide to try your hand at hybridizing a new variety of violet. Pollinating two chosen plants with outstanding characteristics can result in improved colors and shapes of blooms. Variegated foliage can be passed on by the Mother plant and can show beautiful combinations of pinks, tans, and cream colors in the foliage.

After growing for a while you may decide to make your own soil mixture. Having the knowledge that you have learned at club meetings and in the violet magazine, will help you develop a soil mixture with the right PH and ingredients. Is is rewarding to place a plant in your own soil mixture and see it take off and grow lush ad exciting.

Imagine all the fun and learning you will experience. Dream of exploring the world of African violets and their relatives. Believe that you will make friends, show beautiful plants and contribute your knowledge to others.

This is a very fulfilling hobby. Try your hand at growing these lovely plants. Have fun and happy growing.
