African Violet Question

Zone Portland, OR | Jsthvnf1 added on May 28, 2015 | Answered

My African Violet hasn't bloomed in over 3 years. It just keeps growing new leaves and getting a very long neck, but no blooms. I even tried to propagate a new plant by potting a leaf into a new pot, and the leaf is doing the same thing. What am I doing wrong?

Your violet looks to be reaching for light.

Here is a great article that will tell you all the needing care to get your plant blooming.
African Violets are a favorite of mine, my grandmother had nearly 30 plants when I was a young girl and I loved helping her tend them.
She always rotated the plants weekly to make sure they received even light.
