For African violets, leaves are used for propagating. This can be done under any climatic conditions. Matur leaves along with its stalks are plucked from the plant. A mixture of loose soil and coco peat is taken in the ratio 9:1. Once the pot is filled with the mixture, two inch holes are made into it. The stalks must be kept deeply buried into the mixture. Water should be sprayed in such a manner that the leaf don’t get wet. The pot should then be placed under a shade. The roots start growing from the leaf within 2 weeks. Once the roots start growing, then new leaves are expected to appear within 3 weeks. African violets can also be grown from the parent plant through small saplings, by separating the roots from the parent plant and planting it in a pot with mixture prepared as already mentioned above.
