A plant that you probably think about, but think again. This little plant has a fascinating history. Step back in time with me and discover its origins, its wildlife and her family. This site gives you a good overview of  the world of African violet.

By learning the specific needs of this plant, you'll see how it is much stronger than the one might think, and despite maltreatment that we may impose. As said so well, Charles Darwin, "It is not the strongest species that survives, nor the most intelligent, it is one that has the greatest capacity to adapt to change."
