African Violet Pro Tips:
Moniker Magic: Meet the African violet, also known as Saintpaulia or the fancy Saintpaulia ionantha.
Size Matters: These stunners range from a charming 5cm to an impressive 40cm in height, spreading their leafy love up to 25cm wide.
Leafy Divas: Delicate, evergreen leaves that demand a gentle touch, and a cautious approach to heat, sunlight, and moisture.
Climate Cool: Perfect for any climate, just bring them indoors, maintain steady temperatures, and turn up the humidity.
Mix Mastery: Nurture them in a well-drained, aerated African violet potting mix – keeping those roots moist, not drowned.
Sunlight Ballet: Set the stage indoors with bright, indirect light – avoid direct sun and keep them away from drafts and air-conditioning drama.
Blossom Bash: Enjoy year-round blooms, with spring and autumn as the peak seasons. Amp up the floral fiesta by keeping them well-fed, moist, and bid farewell to dried blooms.
Feeding Finesse: Choose your fertilizer adventure – controlled-release at planting or a liquid love affair specifically designed for African violets every watering session.
Hydration Harmony: Keep the soil consistently moist, but hold off until the surface is dry before their next sipping session. Oh, and keep the splash away – these leaves don't do well with surprise moisture parties!
Plant Shipping - WE CANNOT SHIP PLANTS OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA!!!
- Flat Rate $20 shipping for plants within Australia, this for example would cover say 2 x 130mm plants that we bare root and can fit in a small satchel. Note, for much bigger plants we may need to charge a little more than the $20 and this would be on a case-by-case basis with our aim to ship for the least amount possible. You may choose to cancel the order should shipping not be acceptable to you.
Please select $20 Plant Shipping at checkout.
Note: Plants shipped to mainland Australia will arrive bare rooted.
We CAN NOT ship plants to WA.
*Disclaimer: We pack our gorgeous plants for shipment extremely carefully, however we do ask that you keep in mind that once they leave our store, we cannot guarantee how carefully they are handled in transit. We cannot guarantee they have been sung to or talked to by the postmen!
So, if a leaf is a little bent, bruised or maybe a small stem broken off, we cannot control this. If by some chance your plant did not arrive alive, never fear, we have got you covered just email our customer service team firstname.lastname@example.org and we will either replace the plants pronto or refund you.
