Once a new plant starts growing and has roots and at least two or three leaves, then you can cut it from the mother plant. Simply cut the runner away from the plant crown so that each portion (or baby) has a piece of the root system. Each division can then be planted into a pot of its own.
Light affects the flowering process so make sure your violets are receiving planty of filtered, bright light. You may also want to feed it with special African violet fertilizer or add a bit more phosphorus (such as bone meal) to the soil to help promote blooming.
