What should I know about propagation of an African Violet?

I have an African Violet that is in my front garden, it is getting too large for the spot so I would like to move it to the back.

You can actually propagate this plant by leaf -plant it in a good sandy vermiculite soil, it will take 2-6 months. More certain is by division- make sure you have some good root. Don't repot until it's formed 2-3 leaves.

You can cut a piece of the plant down by the roots and then place it in water for a week or so till it grow roots. You need to cut the flowers off though and all but a few leaves.

You can actually propagate more violets from this one plant. This should be done in the spring time. Simply remove a healthy leaf including the stem (about 1 1/2 inches long) and place the stem in the container filled with soil that you wish to grow it in. Water well.

If you are wanting to propagate these types of plants then you will have to make sure they are rooted correctly.
