    I planted some African Violet seeds las Dec 2016. I just transplanted a few into their own private little pots. Hope they stay happy. 20170311_115135.jpg 20170311_115045.jpg

    They are looking good. I love African violets but have never ever tried to start any from seed.

    Bosque, So I have asked you if there was a name on this because some trailers don't have thick, furry leaves. I do see one leaf that could be furry, this is why I ask you. I have asked 2 other violet people about your pictures and all of us, unless they are trailers, think your seedling are begonia. Seeds can be easily mixed up by people.

    Now, in looking for a violet seedling to show Bosque, which I could not find, just look what I found in my files...some of you know I used to have 600 violets. Here are shots of the beginning of it all. Looks tacky and tightly packed but it was our beginning. It is however, the way I paid my greenhouse heat bill.

    Now that it is mentioned I'd concur that those seedlings look awfully close to begonias too.

    I used to have lots of different varieties of African violets. Minis and trailing but alas they're all gone now 'cept for 1 poor plain purple flowering plant (just lost room for them) but they were always such cute and lovely plants.

    I never ever started any from seed as I used to cut the leaves and root them in water.

    Wartrop, I got the seeds in a big seed swap and all it said was african violets white & pink, nothing else. Guess I wii just have to wait and see what they they grow up to be.
