What’s the best way to propagate African violets?
Cuttings from African violets are fragile. Place a cutting on peat pellets that have been well soaked in water, then squeezed to remove excess moisture. Put the cutting and pellets in a small plastic bag, but use a stick or hard plastic tab to keep the bag from touching the cutting. Seal the bag tightly and place it in bright light. When the cutting grows a healthy clump of roots, transfer the pellets to a small pot that is about one-third the diameter of the cutting and its roots. African violets need plenty of light to bloom, and they often do well under fluorescent lights.
