My friend at work had a beautiful African Violet on her desk. It began a slow and steady decline due to lack of light and our boss pouring water on it to 'help it' along not realizing you cannot get water on their leaves. I have a problem. I cannot throw plants away no matter how sickly they are. I took that poor plant home, repotted it in a shot glass (a spare one of course!!) and it is now residing beautifully in its new home. No sign of flowers yet, but when it gets just a bit larger I will begin to feed it with violet food. The lesson from all this? Always have more than one shot glass in the house! HA!
