Good Little Gesneriad

One of the African Violet (Saintpaulia) leaves I stuck in dirt in my office is making little baby leaves!

The image is a bit blurry--I have not been carrying my camera around in an attempt to train myself out of taking photos willy-nilly. I think I will start carrying it again and see how well I can restrain myself. The Mr. Yogato Garden update will never happen if I don't get current pictures, anyway! It is definitely lush right now, but little is blooming. There is promise of flowers soon, so in a few days, it should look spectacular!

But back to this post. I am happy the little guy is making more little guys. Hopefully there will be many more to come--these are suprisingly easy to take care of! I don't know why I had a fear of them before...

  1. Beginner's luck!

    At least for me: I could only do it once. Wish it happened again. What colour is yours going to be when it grows up?

  2. Well, maybe, but I only have a 50% success rate--you didn't see the other leaf that got all limp, mushy, and moldy.

    I am not certain what colour this will be--it's a leaf clipping from a plant that was abandoned after the layoffs at work in April. It wasn't flowering then, and has not yet flowered, but I will keep track of it just to see. It will probably be white, pink, or purple, no?
