Reed's Greenhouse Micro African Violet page


Micro African violets are also sometimes called: Microminis or Microminiature.

They are African violets that are extremely small. The leaves may be 1/4" or even smaller.

General Micro African violet care:
Because of there small size be sure to keep their soil moist, but not wet.
It's best to wick water micro violets or you can also use the 1-1/2" Oyama Pots
but again do not let the Oyama pots dry out.

Propagation of Micro African violets:
I like to pick a larger size leaf from the micro violet.
Cut the stem at an angle as you would any violet and put into your starter mix.
I like to use a starter mix with less perlite for these small leaves.
Then the most important thing is to keep the humidity up.
I use a zip lock bag. I watering the leaf once and then seal the bag.
I just put under grow lights and forget about them for a few week.
