African violets, and other members of the Gesneriaceae family, are known for being delicate, picky plants, due to their very fine roots. They require a soil that is extremely rich in organic matter, while allowing for optimal water retention and aeration- a hard balance to achieve. That’s where Fafard’s African Violet soil comes in!
