Sandy's tips on growing Violets

1.         Pot up small plants into 3 1/2" plastic pots or re-pot larger plants into 4" pots in a mixture of 3/4 Promix and 1/4 sharp sand.

2.         No direct sunlight - bright incident light only e.g. porch;  near bright window.   Air-conditioning is very beneficial.   Do not grow outside in rain.

3.         Water heavily early in morning - leaves dry by nightfall.   It makes no difference if the leaves get wet when watering.

4.         Fertilize weekly with Nutrex 20:20:20, 1 tsp to a gallon.   Wet heavily but do not let stand in water.

5.         Leaf spotting can be cured with Benlate.   2 tsps. per gallon.
