What would be a good location for African violets in the home?
Place African violets in a location that receives bright, indirect light. A site near an east or north window is often a good location. (Do not place African violets in direct sun.) If a suitable window isn’t available, place African violets under a fluorescent light fixture containing two 40-watt fluorescent tubes. Suspend the fixture 8 to 10 inches above plants and leave the lights on for 12 to 16 hours per day. The ideal temperature range for African violets is 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. In winter, keep African violets away from cold drafts and heat sources.
