Here's my NOID violet I got at Lowe's at the end of July. It was just over 7 inches across when I got it. Its now 11 inches! I've never had a violet grow this fast before. Is that rate of growth normal? How much bigger will it get? I'm so pleased because its so healthy looking, aside from a few small spots of sunburn. Would it be considered a standard?

Yes,it's a standard.Some violets are also called large standards.Without knowing what violet it is,I would guess 16-24 inches.

Yep. dinner-plate to serving-platter size. That would be my best guess as well. :)
