And then there were seven . . .
I have a window on the second floor of my house that is perfect for African violets. I purchased a couple in the grocery store years ago that have flourished and bloomed beautifully. One, keeps getting bigger and bigger.
I didn't know what to do with it until a fellow Master Gardener told me I could safely divide it. She had done it and then donated the results for plant auctions to raise money for the Master Gardener program. What a great idea! I counted the divisions and bought six pots. Well, I counted wrong. It was more like eight. I put the two smallest ones in one large pot and the rest in the small pots that I had bought.
I'm not sure what to do with the African violet on the far left. It blooms beautifully but the "stem" keeps getting longer and longer. Maybe I should just take some cuttings to root and dispose of the rest.
And the one in the middle in the first picture? That's an illegal cutting. I won't say where I got it from, just that I had never seen one like it, so I quietly pinched off a leaf and brought it home. It has rooted nicely.
I have accumulated so many houseplants now that I have outgrown the shelf extenders that I bought years ago. All of my windowsills look like the second picture. I'm going to have to break down and buy actual plant stands!
