used the calm Xmas days to finally separate the "babies" from the leaves, it's the first part (still have more waiting but not yet grown big enough)

Laci, I am very unhappy but Happy Harold didn't make it. From the AVSA forum I understand that other growers also have problems with it (although I think only few people have it). I kept it growing by continuous re-starting for a very long time, but it was never more than a small starter-plant here.

On the bright side: my species violets start to do much bnetter lately. Only House of Amani is still doing poorly (and I had that one doing very well for years).

Thinking back I think that what went wrong is that first I got soil mealybugs in my plants, which I poisoned successfully. Unfortunately the pesticide also killed roots of the violets. Everytime I saw poor growth, my reaction was to spray again, which led to more poor growth. Only by restarting from leaves I got eventually healthy plants again. Most plants I had to re-start several times because I kept stubbornly using the same clay pots - which were likely a reservoir for the same pesticides and after a while started to poison the plants again. So I am back to plastic pots now, but also to better looking plants. Can't wait untill spring to -hopefully- see some flowers again. I am still growing with natural light and this means hardly any flowers in winter.

have done some potting of kohleria and achimenes rhizomes during the week-end. I put the kohleria on the window sill because they seem to stand the strong sunlight in summer well.

Still have loads of other plants to repot

I'll not have access to the internet for a few days, so I'll stay "mute" for a while. Talk to all of you later.
