Episode 88: African violets with Annie Rieck
African violets have been loved and nurtured by generations of houseplant growers, but they’ve got a reputation as plants that our grandparents love to grow: cute, maybe, but not cool. That’s changing, though. I talk to African violet grower and show judge Annie Rieck about why she loves these plants, and how to grow them successfully. Plus it's part two of the On The Ledge sowalong: we're talking about equipment. And, a question about variegation and how it affects sun exposure.
