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.
