Q.African Violet Disease??

Zone Apex | ThePlantNoob added on July 25, 2018 | Answered

So I am a beginner and just got a purple African Violet. Haven’t re potted yet (buying the fertilizer/soil) but I am getting suspicious of one thing. When some flowers started dying, I checked the roots and it looks soggyish, but not a dark color, and a little bit inflated. I water every 3 days and I put the plant in water and wait for it to soak until ready. Is this normal? Please help!

Watering every 3 days will be a bit excessive. They need some time of being dry between watering. These flowers can be very finicky if not cared for perfectly.
