If it hasn't been repotted, give a slightly larger pot using African
Violet potting soil. Examine the plant for mealy bugs or other

from fluorescent grow lights. You should see it blooming profusely in
a few weeks. Give it regular AF feedings.

It must have been the combination of early morning sun coming

I just LOVE it when something comes back to life!
Thanks for all the help!

until I gave them morning sun. AFs bloom exceptionally well under
