African Violet New growth

Eliza13ann added on January 10, 2018 | Answered

I recently repotted and drastically scaled down one of my African violets. There is now new growth in the middle of the crown which are definitely baby leaves. But coming out of the dirt, away from the main bulb of the plant is this small new growth and I have no idea what it is. It almost looks like it could be a weed of some sort. I don\'t want to remove it if it is good new growth though. Does anyone know what this is? Thanks!

It's difficult to say at this tiny stage. If your African Violet had flowers that produced seed and it dropped into the soil, it's possible you have sprouted a new plant.
