Yesterday, as I proceeded to remove the side-shoots or “suckers” from some of my African violets, it seemed a shame that no videographer was on hand to film the surgery. Then a crazy idea popped into my head. I could film this houseplant how-to all by myself, and without the benefit of professional lighting, sound, or editing. After all, it’s just you and me in the operating room, yes? Here’s the video, which explains not only how to remove suckers, but how to pot them to make new plants:
Note: Suckers interfere with an African violet’s ability to bloom. That’s why I remove them.
Another note: This video is what you might call “Reality TV.” As I mentioned earlier, I filmed it without the professional gear that my hired-out videographers use.
Was this video helpful to you in some teeny-tiny way? You can let me know by leaving a comment. And if you’d like to obtain a bucket of Jack’s Classic Blossom Booster (the stuff really works), just do what I do, and buy it on Amazon. Click here for details.
