ABOUT this web page:
There are few sources where one can gleam more then bits and pieces of information specifically about chimera African violets. Realizing that most of the information available about African violets is the true for chimera African violets, there are still some unique differences. Specifically the propagation of chimera violets. How can the chimera effect be stabilized? What if you cross two chimera violets? Where can I get them at a reasonable price? How about those e-bay plants? There are nuances and also specific questions about chimera African violets that answers are not easily found. The purpose of this blog/website is to share and interact with other chimera collectors, hobbyists and growers. Reality is there is knowledge and insight in this community but there is not necessarily a specific chimera African violet forum for this to be shared. As you see, I have links on the blog to other sites where insight, knowledge and other bits and pieces of advice can be picked up about chimera’s. The intent is that this blog is to serve as a warehouse of chimera African violet information. So please, feel free to comment, provide advice, talk about your experiences with chimera violets, add your pictures to the collection.
ABOUT me, your Admin.
I have been growing African violets (and other things) in excess of,….well lets just say a long time. A member of The African Violet Society of America and a hobbyist I have been selling my excess collection on e-bay and will also will be selling on this site. All of my chimera African violets are propagated by tissue culture minus the occasional sucker. My education is in the sciences so tissue culture makes sense to me despite the interesting challenges and problems it presents.
