I almost killed this African violet when I over watered it during the Christmas holidays. I guess I was a bit distracted with other stuff. To try to get it back on track, I let it dry out, and then only gave it a very light watering for a few weeks with a dilute 10-52-10 fertilizer. Slowly, it put out some healthy green leaves, and now it is blooming.
A dear friend gave me the pretty porcelain dish, and I thought the pink polka dot plant would look nice in it. I set the plant in a plastic baggy with holes cut in the bottom corners, and then squeezed it into the pot. I'm hoping that will provide enough drainage if I am careful about the watering. The plant will outgrow this location in a few months, but then I can find a new home for it elsewhere.
