Since everything else is the same for it as the other violets I would think it's something to do with the plant itself. Have you checked the roots to see if they are pot bound or girdling, that can put a plant under stress.

.thanks for the good advice I went straight down to the greenhouse and repotted the plant. It looked OK except for the outer drooping leaves. My question now is should i cut off the outer leaves or is this a bit drastict.
