For me, African Violets are the perfect houseplant — they’re about the only ones that I seem to be able to grow, and that the cat doesn’t bother. (They aren’t toxic to kitties, fortunately, because Toby is a sniffer and a nibbler!) So when hubby came home from the supermarket with this $1.00 find last night, I was pleased to have another splash of indoor color. There are a couple of damaged leaves, but nothing that can’t be salvaged. And best of all, as we head into colder, drier air, their thick leaves seem to tolerate indoor heating and the change of light.
