Flowerines are formed long, but thin, so fall under the severity of numerous inflorescences. On each inflorescence there are five buds. Plant blooms for a long time, but it is difficult to achieve this, since Senpolya is a very capricious in this regard. As a rule, flowers can be observed in winter or late in the fall, but provided that the crop will be able to provide a bush with plenty of light.
Features of cultivation
Choosing a plant of a similar variety, it should be borne in mind that violets require good and regular care. How to carry it out correctly, consider below.
The violet should always be planted into the soil, which flows well, dries and passes oxygen. Specially designed primer You can easily find in most garden centers. If you want to create a compost yourself, it is worth using a high humus mixture or organic material. Professionals advise to take one part of peat Moss, Sand and Suglinka.
It is important not to plant a violet into too much container. It does not have a bulk root system, and a large pot contains a lot of soil, which will remain wet long. Since the plant can not use all the water, it will just be rotting.
Violets “EC-goddess of beauty” required to replane regularly when they develop their pot. Plant once every two years requires fresh soil, only so the root system remains healthy.
In addition, the replacement of the old compost helps to get rid of accumulated salts and other hard water chemicals.
Watering and humidity
Beginning rabbing need to be careful during irrigation, it is better to use a watering can with a long naist. Leaves and stems should remain dry, otherwise the rot. Once a month it is worth using the upper watering, all the moisture that fell on the leaves is removed with a paper towel. The rest of the time the plant can eat water through the installed container with fine pebbles or wick. So the violet will take so much moisture as it is necessary, while the soil will remain moderately dry.
Plants always watered water temperature. Too cold or hot water causes damage to roots. As a result, the leaves are twisted when the moisture is absorbed by the root system. Cold water can also cause leaves spotting if the upper irrigation is carried out. Never use soft water, because it increases the content of salts in the soil, which negatively affects the ability of the plant to absorb water and nutrients.
These beautiful plants will be “unhappy” if the air is too dry. Humidity is very important to maintain their health of their leaves. You can put an automatic humidifier or just trays with pebbles and water. It is important to provide good air circulation. On average, the humidity parameter must be at 80%.

During winter months with short cloudy days, it is better to use alternative sources – fluorescent lamps. Violets need from 12 to 16 hours of light and 8 hours of darkness so they can grow and blossom.
The sign of too weak light is thin and dark green leaves with very long and weak stems. Southern or Western windows provide better coverage in winter. In the warm season, it is better to use window sills from the East or Northern side. Violets love temperatures from 20 to 24 degrees heat.

Transplanting and fertilizer
To feed the plant, it is better to make fertilizer together with watering, and the mixture with a large phosphorus content should be used. The dose should be four times less than on the package, since they fertilize violets every two weeks in the growing season, and stop making feeding in the sleep phase.
Dry fertilizer should always be applied to the surface of the soil, and watering after feeding must be superficial, after it is possible to return to the usual method. Violets will bloom more often if the rabbing will be regularly feeding them. You can use feeding with a proportion of 20: 20: 20, but only half of the proposed dosage.
To transplanting the soil should be loose, consisting of one-third of good garden soil, can drum, one third of sand and one third of peat moss. This mixture add a teaspoon of bone flour to every kilogram of soil. Moreover, compost makes weakly acid, about pH 6.5.
