African Violet Fertilizer, from  http://ndoorplants.com

African violet care and feeding isn’t an age-old mystery. Just a little education is needed for year around blooming and healthy plants.

Sunset’s gardening books crown African Violets as the most popular houseplant in the world.

After leaving the store lights, the African violet never looks quite as good at home as when you bought it. If you begin doubting your gardening skills, help has arrived.

With a little understanding African violets are the least temperamental of all plants to raise,

get to bloom and flourish. Given the right amount of water, fertilizer and light, they will magically bloom almost all the time.

Much has been written about how to fertilize, when to fertilize, how to water, and not get the leaves wet, how to water and not get the crown wet, but little on how to water without getting the other spots wet. Commercial violet growers, home growers and hybridizers have all figured out how to water correctly and feed their African violets correctly, at the right time, every time, to easily sustain the plants indefinitely.

This fertilizer/ water solution is so easy that even a third grader can succeed and grow African violets as good as the pros.

Water/Wicking. By inserting a nylon wick

into the African violet soil, (One cup AV potting mix + one cup peat moss + one cup vermiculite /perlite) from the bottom of the potted plant and allow the wick to extend down into a water reservoir below the plant, optimum watering, fertilizing and care can be achieved. This system of watering allows you to put the water soluble fertilizer in the reservoir and the plant will only wick up the perfect amount of water and fertilizer that it needs to thrive. A novel decorative E-cubez™ violet pot has been designed to let you see at a glance when the reservoir needs to be refilled, about once every 30 days.

African violets are endemic to hillsides in east Africa, Arc Mountains of Tanzania and Kenya. This region has become devoid of the rich micro and macro nutrients that was once abundant in this area of the world. Leaching of these minerals has caused the plant life to become anemic, struggling to exist in this barren eco-system. Ndoor Plantz African Violet Fertilizer 12-36-14™ has added these crucial minerals back into their formula from an ancient form of prehistoric plant material known as humic shale. This all organic, plant concentrate of trace minerals is concentrated mineral nutrients. This exclusive natural formula is combined with the industry standard formulation (12-36-14 ) for continuous blooming and healthy plants. This unique formula USES NO UREA!

Ndoor Plantz African Violet Fertilizer 12-36-14 can be used for every indoor or outdoor plant.

Look at the numbers on the fertilizer package. The first number refers to the ingredient that makes leaves healthy and big. The second number refers to the nourishment for blooming and the flowers. The third is for the overall health of the plant. The second number needs to be larger than the first number to promote blooming.

These primary nutrients are essential elements and MAY have some trace elements, but these are not always listed on the package. Local water supplies may contain some of the same trace elements which can lead to problems with toxicity.

Nitrogen, Some growers use several fertilizers, some for growth, others for blooming. If you have problems with acid pH, grow in cold conditions or you may prefer a fertilizer that does not use urea as a source for nitrogen, as this could lead to a condition called ammonium toxicity which spots the leaves. For this reason our African Violet Fertilizer is Urea free. The result of using urea-based fertilizers in acid conditions or cold are generally seen on the leaves or in the root system. The damage caused by urea induced Root Burn reduces an African Violet’s ability to properly absorb water and nutrients. For these reasons all of our nitrogen sources EXCLUDE urea.

Nitrogen is needed for:

• essential for growth of foliage,
• produces tender, lush, green leaves,
• deficiency results in little or no growth and a yellow-green color (chlorosis),
• is easily flushed through the soil.
Phosphorus is believed to improve flowering, so a higher phosphorus formulas is used when preparing for show and home displays.
• stimulates root growth,
• hastens the maturity of plants,
• promotes development of flowers,
• deficiency can result in stunted or slow growth and purplish discoloration on leaves,
• remains in the soil quite well.

Potassium
• gives vigor to tolerate changing weather conditions,
• helps resist disease,
• assists in the food manufacturing process,
• strengthens cell wall structure for strong stems,
• deficiency can cause week stems and slow growth,
• leaches from the soil, not as fast as nitrogen.
Plants need micronutrients in very small amounts of which there are seven micronutrients. Boron is important for overall growth and flower development. Iron provides a catalyst in the production of chlorophyll. Manganese, molybdenum, chlorine, zinc, and copper play an important role in photosynthesis. Copper also helps to metabolize nutrients into usable energy sources.

African Violet Pots

There are nine major elements that Violets need: calcium, carbon, hydrogen, magnesium, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, potassium and sulfur and at least seven micronutrients; boron, chlorine, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc.

Many trace elements have been determined to provide a beneficial effect to African Violets

, such as silicon (Si) cobalt (Co), nickel (Ni), and sodium (Na).
When discussing the elements that may go into a Violet Food, it is important to include a well balance formula that addresses all of the violets need at the appropriate time.
