the key to my prize winning Violets...

By 

from Northern, FL

Comments about Miracle-Gro African Violet Food:

I have been fascinated with growing African Violets since, as a little girl, I saw my great grandmother transplanting her violets.  I asked her a million questions that day but the one  thing that I remember her telling me was that, "They don't like their feet crowded or wet." She would keep them in a long dish with their pots sitting on gravel. Over time I found out my own secrets to growing African Violets.  I always have a window sill or two full of violets in bloom.

One secret I have found is planting smaller plants in specially designed violet pots and adding a drop or two of **Miracle-Gro African Violet Food** to each water change.

Miracle-Gro African Violet Food comes in liquid form with a formula of 7-7-7 that is the perfect recipe for healthy, happy violets. The squeeze bottle is simple to use- just take off the small white cap to unveil the dropper and squeeze.

Although African Violets have a reputation for being difficult to grow, they don't have to be.  The secret is in the pot, not getting the leaves wet and, of course, Miracle-Gro African Violet Food!

A must have for violet owners

By 

from Catlettsburg, KY

Comments about Miracle-Gro African Violet Food:

Miracle grow African Violet plant food is an extremely easy to use plant fertilizer product. It is already in liquid form so you just have to add a few drops to your water pail when watering your African violet plants. I have found that using the African Violet plant food makes violets perk up and bloom even when they have not bloomed in years. It also makes the leaves and stems healthier and stronger. You can see the difference in just a few weeks after using this plant food. The instructions say that you can use it every time your water your violets. It is specifically formulated for African Violets but I have heard others use it on Orchids with great success. It helps the orchids to bloom again and it doesn't cause a build up of salts like the powdered-type plant fertilizers and you don't want the salts with African Violets or Orchids because that will burn these delicate houseplants.

Miracle-gro brought them back from the brink of death.

By 

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about Miracle-Gro African Violet Food:

I was given a couple of of very neglected African violet plants from someone who bought them for the flowers, but quickly lost interest when they could not get them to re-bloom.  These poor plants, the ones that were still alive, were not the healthiest color and were somewhat crispy.  With some tender love and care and Miracle - Gro African Violet Food, I was able to bring these guys back form the brink of planty death.  Now I have three big, lush, dark green, african violets sitting in my window.  Two are the rescued plants and the third is one of their babies and soon I will have two more because I see a little baby plant growing under each of the original rescue plants.  Not only are my african violets big and healthy, but they bloom all the time.  Before using Miracle - Gro African Violet Feed I had never had violets that bloomed so often and for so long.  Everyone that comes over when the plants are in bloom coments on how beautiful they are.

Miracle Grow works great and this product is no different.

By 

from Gresham, OR

Comments about Miracle-Gro African Violet Food:

I have loved african violets since I was a little girl. They are abeautiful dainty flower with a firm stock. But they're very difficult to  grow and keep alive. I have tried everything but I have not been previously successful. Miracle-Grow African Violet Food works, well Miracles. My African Violets have never looked better. They look strong and healthy and the roots look great. I even think the color has gotten more rich. They multiplied in size and the number of blooms and they are far easier to take care of with Miracle-Grow African Violet Food. I have used the regular Miracle-Grow for years and I trust the brand. This product is no different, it works great, is fairly inexpensive and has the Miracle-Grow name. I highly recommend this product for the garden enthusiast or anyone who enjoys the simple beauty of the African Violet. I love this stuff and will continue to use it for years to come!

Lovely lush healthy plants

By 

from Bemidji, MN

Comments about Miracle-Gro African Violet Food:

 As a child growing up I watched my mom care for and fuss over her African violets. She would genly damp cloth and dry the leaves and change soil every spring. Over the years shes tried everything on the market to fertilize  her beautiful plants. 

 Some of the fertizers shes used have burnt roots, made the leaves all fall off, made flowers quit blooming . made the leaves turn black, made her leaves on her plants spotted and some even made her soil grow nasty mold. Some fertizers made the soil in her plants smell so bad that she had to soak the roots in water for a few days just to get rid of the smell.

   My moms african plants were very very special to her as leaves in our family and plants have been passed down from generation to generation . I am amazed at this plant because if you take care of it properly it can actually outlive you. My mom has a deep burgendy one with white trim around the burgendy flowers that was mygrandmas when she was 7. my grandma passed aay at 91 and the plant still lives and my mom has taken leaves and rooted them over the years starting new plants.

  I went to our garden center because my plants were starting to look dull and droopy and it did not seem to matter what I did they were dying.

 The lady at the store recommended this fertilizer to me and I tried it on my plants. It was not an overnight cure I had to work at it. Before I used it I had to change all my plants soil. Then I was surprised how easy this stuff was to use and I was even happier that it would not hurt my pets. Within about 3 weeks I began noticing the leaves getting healthier and actually perking up.

 By the middle of the next month my plants were almost back to their full health.

  This is such a wonderful product and I have used it on droopy spider plants and on my hoyia Hoyias are very funny because they either will perk up or they just die ,

  I bought this for my mom too for her plants and she even puts a tiny bit in water when she roots her leaves . This stuff has really helped us keep our really old plants looking so healthy. After using this its hard to tell by leaves and such which ones were grandmas . WE will always use this in our family and hopefully years from now they keep making it.

An Excellent Food For Your Violets

By 

from Grand Rapids, MI

Comments about Miracle-Gro African Violet Food:

It is easy to buy African violets because they're inexpensive and full of bright blooms. The trick is keeping them going at home to remain bright and beautiful. Along with good sunlight, this African Violet Miracle Gro food helps immensely. It is very easy to use, as it is a liquid instead of the messier powders. You just follow the package directions and add it to your water, using as often as recommended. This is really the only way that I can get blooms back on my African violets. Otherwise, it seems that they never re-bloom. It is a guaranteed product and I've never had to find out if that is true. When I use it, I get a nice healthy plant and many new blooms.

The only downside is that I have to remember to use this food, because it's just an extra step when watering houseplants. But, it is worth taking that step, because I can definitely tell a difference when I have or have not used the food.

Better African Violets with Miracle Grow African Violet Food

By 

from Moundville, MO

Comments about Miracle-Gro African Violet Food:

Miracle-Gro African Violet Food is the perfect product for any African Violet grower. It is very reasonably priced. Easy to use with the easy off cap and squeeze bottle. Your flowers grow bigger, better, and bloom longer. Every little girl whose ever been able to watch an indoor gardner work with African Violets usually falls in love with them.

Our family always places them in North windows.  We are careful not to get the leaves wet when we water. Their pots are deep sitting in a smaller plastic margarine tub so the water can drain. We like to have a range of colors so it looks more like a Victorian lady's home than a house with little kids.

This is one product and one plant that don't require you to be a green thumb gardner if you just stick to the basics you will enjoy blooming African Violets.
