African violet buzz this month is the AVSA 2015 convention. “See you in Kansas City! May 24th – May 31st” is a last minute planner with things to do and see in Kansas City. Did you know it’s called the “City of Fountains”? Page25


Also, look for these other articles and tips in the current African Violet Magazine:

  • Neil Lipson’s “Violets are not Humans” is an interesting look at life’s requirements: water, light, humidity, food and temperature for humans and plants. He analyzes fertilizers and nutrients.  As always, Neil gives his readers interesting ideas to ponder. Page 44
