Growing African violets from seed is simple. I have been using chimera African violets as seed parents for years and as of late have been offering the seed on my site. I have received requests from some to provide seed growing instructions. As you will see it could not be simpler or as fool proof. Just use a growing media that is properly moistened and place the sown seed under light for 8-10 hours a day. The most difficult part of the process is handling the incredibly tiny seed. For comparison purposes I have a penny, grass seed, African violet seed and the smallest of seed I am aware of, an orchid seed, all in the picture below.
To get the directions on planting African violet seeds just click on the following link: GROWING AFRICAN VIOLETS FROM SEED. Just as a reminder, chimera African violets CANNOT be grown from seed. Crosses between chimera violets will result in interesting outcomes that will be standard African violets not chimera African violets.
