Standard Violets

"Standard" sized varieties typically grow 10-12" in diameter when grown as houseplants, and will grow comfortably in a 4" pot when mature. When grown for exhibition, well-grown specimens can reach a diameter of 18" to 24", with leaves as large as one's hand. Keep in mind that these are show plants, given special care (most importantly, disbudding). Grown as a houseplant, they will not grow nearly so large--you need keep only 4-5 rows of leaves to keep your plant attractive and blooming.

Wordpress or Blogger, I just can't decide. I want a blog for my site and see positives and negatives. I like what you have here and blogger's free so maybe I should just go that route. Here's my little site I'm gonna blog about-- fireplace hearth
