All About African Violets – Episode 3.027 – It’s May!

Welcome to my Sunroom

Hi Everyone! 

Come on in to my sunroom!  I hope you enjoyed seeing the Illinois show last time, and also the before/after footage of my stands. 

It might actually finally be spring in Chicagoland.  Maybe . . .

I had great fun this past week, speaking to the Garden Club of Evergreen Park at the Evergreen Park Public Library, in Evergreen Park, Illinois!  Thanks you guys!!!

Tips and Treasures

The National Convention is in just a few weeks, so I thought I would spend a little time today talking about some of the best things about convention.

First thing, however, is that you have to actually Register!  Once you do that . . .

  • Presentations
  • Commercial Sales
  • Seeing old friends and making new ones
  • The Show!!

A Look at the Stands

This look at what’s on the stands is not quite so lenthy as last time.

What’s next for my coryteplectus cutucuensis . . . ???

Epic fail . . . ?   Maybe not!

Not an Epic Fail after all! Corytoplectus cutucuensis is sprouting new growth!

As you can see, although the existing leaves croaked, it is sending up new growth!
