Ok.........then the mix you provide above will work for African violets and all its' cousins rather than what the AVSA magazine says. I trust you and am willing to try it.

I am just going to post a few pics to tell you the problems in soil I have with each one
This is a streptocarpus. i tried to wick them, but they tend to have crown rot and have to be planted perfectly. I have given up on the wicking with these although this one was wicked until I gave it away.

Now I just water from the bottom in permanest trays. I also have to make the mix lighter with perlite so they never stay wet.

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
