From Store to Show Violets
This one is from the home improvement store actually, but you see a bunch of stuff wrong with it.
It has baby leaves, broken leaves, spent flowers, suckers, what doesn't it have wrong?
Look for the small leaves that are directly under the largest outer row of leaves. The outer row should logically have the biggest, oldest leaves. When they are little you know that they are from the starter plant and they are babies.
Here is that small three leaved sucker removed. You could plant up that portion to make a baby plant.
One of the lower leaves is rotated to the right. If we reposition it, it might straighten up in a couple of weeks and fill in the gap.
Please feel free to comment.
