Episode 94

Welcome to Episode 94 of All About African Violets.  It’s Question Day!  Lots of great questions from viewers, and my growing methods and growing conditions get called on the carpet!

Welcome to my Sunroom

  • Still some possible viewing issues on mainly Apple devices – here is the info I was given by WordPress on how to do a force refresh.  Please try this if you are still having difficulties.
    • WordPress advised that everything was working again, but gave me the following info:
      • “If it’s still not working for you, can you please do a force refresh
        when opening the site, then try again? The command for force refresh is Ctrl + F5 on Windows, and Apple + R or Cmd + R on OS X.”

Episode 93

Welcome to Episode 93 of All About African Violets.  This week we look at separating more mature plantlets, and see them again in the look at what’s on the stands, and I have one of my more interesting hairdos . . . ;-D

Welcome to my Sunroom

  • Apparently there is still something wonky with episodes playing correctly on Apple devices.  There was an issue that affected pc’s where the episodes would not play.  WordPress, which hosts this site rolled out an upgrade on their end and it seems to still have a few kinks.  I have alerted them about it still not working on iPads and as soon as I hear back, I will advise.
    • WordPress advised that everything was working again, but gave me the following info:
      • “If it’s still not working for you, can you please do a force refresh

Tips and Treasures

  • More “Comeback” footage for you today!  Sometimes we don’t always get to separate and pot on plantlets in a timely manner. . . it can still be done with no harm to the plantlets!

What’s on the Stands

  • Things continue to grow!
  • There’s a look this week at my office plants.
  • The bobbin-like risers I’m using came from a place called Jule-Art.  Mine are model BBR2. They are a bit spendy, but they really help with space issues.
