I got African Violet!

African Violets are a little temperamental, but your TLC will be rewarded with beautiful colorful blooms!

Medium sunlight, with a minimum of 8 hours or darkness per day to encourage blooming

First I wanted to tell you what my favorite is, but then I saw that you wanted me to try the quiz, so I did it - and I got the right answer.
Of course it was that I should keep my favorite. Most of them alive in one house and then this kind in the house without warmth.
Now I know that it is called African violet, too

#2 Maybe you don't check the soil before you water the plant. If it isn't completely dry it isn't time to water. Remember, they can't swim. LaughingWinking
