hi all could anyone please tell me how long an african violet should flower for i keep it in the kitchen window which is facing west then what do i do after it has flowered.thank you in advance.



Most modern African Violets try to bloom year-round, but are usually most successful when the room temperatures are below 24 deg. C, and above16 deg. If it heats up too much in the summer, they may decide to take a vacation until fall. While they aren't blooming, go ahead and keep watering and feeding as normal--they will store energy that will show up as greater plant size, and more bloom in the fall.
