@Figglet I love the color of your flowers and I have African violets on my wantlist. I was just reading this interesting fact that they all come from the one species?
Though numerous species of Saintpaulia have been named over the past century, DNA testing now limits the number of species to six, with eight subspecies. The first species named, Saintpaulia ionantha, - in its many and varied forms - remains the prototype for the plant we all know.
@Seymour crazy right?! People have done wonders cultivating all these varietals. You should check out Etsy. Tons of variety for sale!
@Figglet thanks for the tip, I will check it out 👍😀
