Voluptuous Violet, Missoula, Montana
African Violets are like bamboo in that they will thrive indoors with little to no natural light. Note the caveat, "From what I've seen", because there is a catch: you must have the gift of not killing foliage "they" say anyone can grow. I do not have this gift, which is why I no longer have any houseplants, save the one hardy jungle plant my husband keeps alive. The Lorax speaks for the trees and he told me to leave their smaller cousins alone.
