I have an African Violet that is very healthy, and since using “Yates Brigitta African Violet Food” it has become quite prolific. Now it is top heavy in the original little plastic pot it came in, and I was told by a garden centre that you never have to transplant them into a bigger pot.

I want to check this with you, and need to know do I just stand it in a bigger pot, so it doesn’t topple, or do I need to transplant to a bigger pot?

Also they told me when I use this special food, it will help it to flower, which it hasn’t done, so far.
I would appreciate your advice on this, as I am not really great on pot plants, so this one has pleasantly surprised me, and I would like to continue the same .
With thanks Jenny C

Hi Jenny

Thanks for your question. It sounds like at this time your plant has put all of it’s energy into the foliage growth rather than the flowers. Yes I would plant it into a bigger pot if you have a situation of it being top heavy. You will be able to purchase African violet potting mix at your local Palmers. I would suggest that it has enough food on board to not have to top up with any more African violet food for now.

Happy gardening
