Debra Prinzing added this to Retro Houseplants Get a New Look
Miniature African violets in 2-inch pots look pretty sweet displayed in a tiered cupcake tree. This creative idea would be perfect for a brunch or birthday party centerpiece.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to No Need to Shrink From Violet
For starters, I am defining violet as nature does: a wide range of hues, ranging from the softest creamy lavender to the deepest pungent purple. Violet and purple are kindred spirits on the color wheel and often happily invade each other’s space.

Improve your mental health When you are feeling under the weather, nothing perks you up like the gift of a plant or colourful flowers. Studies have shown that hospital patients who have flowers or plants in their room, or who look out onto a garden from their room, often recover more quickly than those who have no plants around them. Plants help to increase our levels of positivity and make us feel more secure and relaxed. They can also help with loneliness and depression. Caring for a living thing gives us a purpose and is rewarding, especially when a plant you have been lovingly caring for bursts into bloom. Choose easy-to-care-for plants such as African violets (Saintpaulia). They bloom all year round with little effort.

Love this miniature tiered garden with African Violets. These plants help clean indoor air of toxic VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and spores. Plus they come in so many gorgeous colours and are so easy to grow!
