  Another well-known type of violets is African violet. As its name suggests, originates from Africa. Moreover this type of violets is very common and favored as garden plants. African violets are easy to cultivate. Simply keep in mind that as well as other flowers, they need sunlight and watering. Nevertheless keep in mind that a waterlogged soil can be very dangerous as well. Keep in mind that African violets breathe through their roots, over-watering can deprive the plant of air. Moreover another key issue is fertilization. Please keep in mind that African violets like to be pot-bound. Therefore it is a good idea to add a nutrient rich potting mixture to their pot. Please also pay attention to the fertilizers applied. African violets prefer nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K), usually in a 10-10-10 formula. Your African violet food should also be 100% water-soluble so that your plant can absorb the fertilizer's beneficial elements.
