Hi Charlotte
I do not have much luck with african violets. I would be sending mine to live with you too! Your Tree Philodendron Selloum will get huge if put in the right spot outside!
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!

I had no idea Tree Philodendron Selloum could be grown in the landscape. I know it wouldn't work here, but I always assumed it would only grow in rain forest climate, since that's where I saw a giant one during a vacation to Hawaii. I used to keep these as houseplants, back in the day (1970s) when it was a status symbol to have huge collections of houseplants in one's home. (At least that's the way it was in Arizona.) One gal I knew had over 400 houseplants crowded into her living room!

I think that is the same tree I have, wish you had a larger picture of it. My African Violets are not blooming right now either.

I have not had too much success with African Violets either. Well, they always start out beautiful, then something happens. But yours looks like it's going to bloom any day now. Take some pictures of the pretty purple color when it does!

I haven't had houseplants in years because of my cat & dogs. They do brighten up the house during the dreary days of winter. :) Happy Bloomin' Tuesday.

Your AVs look so healthy! I'm sure they are knockouts when they are in bloom. Does your philo overwinter outside? I love this leaf. I have a big one (that has to stay inside) that I just moved to get more sun. It is a regular split leaf, without any fancy stuff, like yours:) I bet it is really something when it gets going.

It takes a true green thumb to grow african violets! My grandma had a plethora of them in her north window. I have not mastered these plants yet! Hug e kudos from me to you! It is beautiful!

I envy your ability to grow the Tree Philodendron outside. Although y'all are just a couple of hours south of here, it obviously is warmer and milder than here in Vicksburg. I enjoyed dropping by your blog.

It will be fun to watch your Tree Phiilodendron grow outside. I don't do well with indoor plants. Anxious to see your violets in bloom. Jean
