Chimera African Violet Humako Jantien

Of all the chimera African violets in my collection one of the most “durable” cultivars that always demonstrates remarkable symmetry and is topped off by a tight blooming head is Humako Jantien. I took a number of different photos in a variety of light conditions to find the one image that exactly portrays the purple color in the petals, both light and dark as it exists when looking at the plant on the growing stand. This image exactly hit it using filtered daylight.

The above photograph best reflects the true purple colors of the blooms. The plant in these two images are growing in a simple 2 oz plastic cup. Click on any of the images to enlarge them.

The symmetry as illustrated in the above image occurred with essentially no “plant grooming” on my part. From my perspective the clean symmetry and tight bloom head makes this cultivar a natural for those folks interested in growing African violets to show and compete . Something I personally have no interest in. Some of the other benefits I noted is that it will bloom with only 12 hrs of light per day.
