African violet plant – seed pods

African violet seed pods

African violet seed pods

I normally have a few fertilized african violet plants on the go so thought I’d share a few pictures of the seed pods that form after you fertilize them successfully.

I’ve heard of some people who have witnessed self-pollination by their plants – see this chap’s blog. However, I have found that I only get development of seed heads if I ‘mechanically’ fertilize the plants myself.

I intend to add a guide on how to fertilize your own african violets at some point in the near future.
