All About African Violets – Episode 3.031 – Home from National

Welcome to my Sunroom

Hi Everyone! Come on in and relax. We’re going to talk today about what happens when you get home from National, or any other show you might have attended. I’m so glad so many of you enjoyed walking through the National convention with me last episode! I loved seeing it all again, myself!

Tips and Treasures

This week I’m going to take you through my process when I get home from a big show like National, and you’ll see the stands as they looked when I got home! In this episode I also demonstrate how to put down a leaf!

A Look at What’s On the Stands

Finally! You haven’t seen the stands since May, and in this episode you got to see them when I came back from National, as well as seeing how they look now. Plenty of new leaves, and yes, I did ramp up my collection.

In fact, it went from about 30 varieties to 74! ===:-O That’s me with my hair standing on end more than usual. As you know, however, not all of the leaves I came home with will make it, and of those that do, not all will be happy in my growing conditions. It will be pretty interesting around here this fall, though!
