    Wow, very nice African Violets! I have tried to grow those a dozen different times and nearly always seem to be better at killing them than anything else. Your's are beautiful, and also, the Laelia is so pretty. You have me shorting out my keyboard over that one. Someday I will find one of those, yours is stunning!! Thanks for sharing....

    Really? I used to just pinch a leaf, and let it sit in a cup of water until it has roots, and then pot it up. They don't like overpot though, so it's better if you pot it up every year.

    Jojo, I like the purple one, I haven't seen that many layers of petals in African Violets before.
