African Violet Plant root growing out of soil
I have an African violet plant that is about 10 years old. It bloomed regularly for about 8 years. It was getting too large for the pot, I thought. So I replanted it into a larger pot. It never bloomed again. The root of it started coming out of the soil, and I would put more soil over it. This did not help, as it continues to grow, and is about 3 inches or more out of the soil. I tried to bend it back into the soil, but I am afraid I will break the root. What do I do, and why is it like this now? Any help would be very much appreciated.
