African violets are perhaps the most popular flowering houseplants grown in the world today. There are many reasons for this.
- The plants generally flower the year round, giving an almost continuous display of blooms.
- They require the same temperatures humans find comfortable, making them easy to raise in our homes
In short, few plants have so many positive characteristics for a successful partnership with humans; fewer still have enjoyed the African violet’s immense popularity and success.
