She outgrew her pot so fast, but her blooms won't pause long enough for me to upgrade her ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒธ

These plants grow so surprisingly fast with the right conditions! When my partner gifted me one of these for Valentineโ€™s Day, I canโ€™t lie I was a little worried because itโ€™s blooms were on their way out at the time and I read that these plants were so finicky and needed special treatment and yada yaโ€ฆ. But now itโ€™s one of my favorite plants ๐Ÿ˜‡ yours is so beautiful with the purple flowers.
What a great pic! Sheโ€™s beautiful ๐Ÿคฉ
Wow! Sheโ€™s amazing!! ๐Ÿคฉ Any special care secrets? I got mine from a grocery store in a little rough shape. Trying to revive it but it looks nowhere near as nice as yours ๐Ÿ‘
Thatโ€™s a nice one wow!!!
@EagerPhlox rbos was a rescue as well. I rescued two of them and really the only difference in conditions is that this one is in a glazed pot and the other is in terracotta. They are in almost the same windows, get water according to Greg, etc. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ
@PlantMompy wow what a gorgeous violet. Well take care of. Great job Ashley.
@PlantMompy you are doing something right if sheโ€™s happy enough to bloom nonstopโ€ฆ upgrading her pot can waitโ€ฆ enjoy the flowers while they last๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ
@FirstCanna she gave me one pause and I was like "oh good, dormancy right before winter, I can wait until spring" and the next time I watered there were buds ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜‚
@PlantMompy she loves youโ€ฆ๐Ÿ˜Š
They bloom best when they ate pot bound. Show growers never go above a 4โ€ pot for standards. I wouldnโ€™t pot up, just repot for fresh soil.
Thanks, @PolishDill! One less thing on my to-do list!
