Hello from Southgate, Michigan, USA

Postby SteveT » October 7th, 2016, 7:51 pm

Hello everyone,
After many attempts to join the forum, I have finally been successful. happy: I have grown AVs for about twenty years and am now very involved growing Russian/Ukrainian varieties. This has been a real experience for me as I have found these violets to be a bit more temperamental than US hybrids but so very rewarding when you get them to come true. I have many questions to ask and since you are all the experts on these varieties, I am sure you will be able to give a great deal of good advice and solid answers. I am looking forward to making many friends here. I have a small business here called Starznstreps. I hope to elevate the popularity of Russian/Ukrainian hybrids here in the USA. Enough for now. Good growing everyone.

Hello Steve,

great to have you here in our forum - I am happy you did not give up on us :) We had trouble with the registration process some time ago but now the problem is solved.

Happy growing,

Hi Steve,
Welcome to the forum. Wow, growing african violets for about twenty years, you must have a lot of knowledge about them. I have just began growing them, I hope one day I could too say that I have been growing them for that long.

Hi Steve, welcome to the forum! It is really nice to see that some didn't give up on forums. there is a lot going on on facebook, but anything posted there disappears deep down the line after a while. Over here, it is possible to find all topics again. I haven't been so active on the forum myself for a while, and also my violets have been at a standstill (didn't loose many though). I am more a grower of wild species violets myself, but regarding cultivation the difference is not so big. I started over 25 years ago with a violet which I still have (S. pendula) but don't have much space so I tend to have about 20 varieties or so.
Best regards,
Paul Veenvliet
