African Violets

Should I Repot an African Violet?

Digaudio added on October 29, 2015 | Answered

I have an African violet (6 years old) that has what looks like stalk or trunk (3" tall). It's been doing great. The leaves started getting darker and sagging. Now it's just lifeless and weepy to one side. What can I do to bring it back to life?

Your African Violet has become leggy and is growing out of the pot.
This can happen if the plant is trying to move to the light or just the age of the plant.
If the plant is limp it may be from over or under watering.

You can repot the plant or even use the leaves to propagate new plants. This is a great way to save an old plant.
