Do African violets change color?
Similarly one may ask, why is my African violet turning white?
Powdery mildew afflicts African violets. In severe cases, the leaves become covered with a powdery, white to pale gray coating. High humidity and poor air circulation contribute to the spread of this disease, which begins with a few isolated leaf spots.
Additionally, do African violets need direct sunlight? They thrive in moderate to bright, indirect, indoor light. African Violets, like other plants, need light for photosynthesis. Even when all the essential nutrients are available to the plant, a complete absence of sunlight will literally result in starvation.
Beside above, what color is African violet?
African violets are available in a wide range of colors and types. You may choose from several hundred varieties depending upon the flower color, form and plant characteristics you prefer. Flower color varies from blue to violet, lavender, pink, red-violet, blue-violet, lavender-pink and white.
How often do you water an African violet?
Examine the soil with your fingertip, if it feels dry, be ready to water the plant. They require more or less water depending on what type of potting soil you use. However, flush the soil thoroughly with water every month or 6 weeks. This will reduce the risk of any harmful salts to build-up in the land.
