African Violets Care

Marthab added on September 17, 2012 | Answered

I have three African Violets in three separate plastic pots. I'm having trouble keeping them alive. I know you water from the bottom and the center leaves look good, but the outside leaves are green, curling under, and limp. What to do with them? Should I cut them off or will they get well? I do let the soil dry before I water. Should they be in a different pot? Thanks for your answer.

I would remove the outer leaves that are soft and curling. I suspect that there is a root rot problem. I would repot them in African Violet soil or any other kind of well draining soil.
