Known as African violet, Saintpaulia is a small and perennial evergreen plant, native to the mountainous and tropical areas of Tanzania and Kenya. This plant is characterized by fleshy dark green leaves with a velvety appearance which is conferred on them by the thin hair. Throughout the yearthin fleshy stems stand among the leavescarrying some five-petal flowers of various colors, capable of illuminating any area of the house.

 

TREATMENT: This species needs abundant light, but it could be damaged by direct sunlight. It is difficult to recreate in the apartment the light conditions of the undergrowth where the plant grows, but you can just place the pot near a large window. 
The secret to maintaining a healthy and constantly full of flowers African violet regards watering: water it regularly, trying to keep the soil always moist and avoiding water stagnation. It will therefore be necessary to water very often, but using small quantities of water, which must be directed to the soil and not to the foliage. The leaves, in fact, which are very fleshy, tend to dry slowly and an excessive amount of water could make them sick. 

This plant species likes good environmental humidity, which is why it is useful to place the pot inside a slightly larger pot holder, where gravel or wet clay can be kept.
