African violet leaves – can you buy and grow?

African violet leaf cuttings

African violet leaf cuttings

In a previous article I explained that I wanted to test whether african violet leaves that have been detached from a plant for four days (mimicking potential postage time-scales if bought from a supplier, on eBay say) would still make viable leaf-cuttings.

So… a few weeks later and still no roots (but that’s not necessarily a surprise as it can take a while). However, the leaves are still looking in pretty good condition. Therefore, I’m starting to think they will do OK and hopefully (from my point of view so I can start offering african violet leaves for sale), they’ll start rooting before long.
