How to get beautiful African violets - Temperature
The African violet is a tropical plant. She likes a temperature of a comfortable home. This is why it is so easy to grow Saintpaulia in our homes. If possible, we must provide a temperature between 20 ° C to 22 ° C overnight. During the day temperatures between 24 ° C to 28 ° C suits the plant. It is preferable to maintain a difference of 5 ° C between day and night. This temperature difference increases the flowering of African violet. The flowers are larger, more numerous with more intense colors.
The temperature must not drop below 15 ° C. At this temperature the growth begins to decrease. Too cold will damage the plant. Do not forget that the Saintpaulia is a tropical plant.
It is important to water the plant with water at room temperature. Water too cold can cause death of some cells and thus produce a discoloration of the leaves.
