African Violet Propagation. When I propagate African Violets from leaves, I plant the leaves in the same potting mix that I use for planting my violets. The container for the leaves should always have holes in the bottom for drainage of excess water. The leaves are kept moist, but not too wet. If the leaves are kept very wet, they will rot.
Grab a container and plant layers of bulbs that will give you three bursts of color when spring arrives. Choose bulb varieties that flower a few weeks apart, such as crocus, tulips, and daffodils, which will bloom in rotation for up to six weeks. To fill a container thats 12 inches in diameter and 12 to 14 inches deep, youll want about 9 crocus, 7 tulip, and 5 daffodil bulbs.
