My african violet it blooming again. This plant is getting old, but it still blooms faithfully. I use African violet plant food in the water and water it once a week. I also have a lamp over it with one of those daylight bulbs. I am wanting to plant my outside pots with flowers, but only bought one plant so far. It's an 18 inch Ivy-trailing Geranium and is amethyst color. This is a picture that is what it is suppose to look like. I will post a picture of mine when it gets to this stage.
