My mother has had this plant since before I was born. It's got a trunk over a foot and blooms reliably every year. We keep it in our bathroom, as it resents being moved around. It loves the humidity. The other violets we've had have all perished but this one just pushes on. Lovely draping plant for a tropical effect, the bathroom wouldn't be the same without it!

I love the little yellow dots in the middle of the purple bloom.
