Perfect Violet Hunt is a blog about hybridising African Violets. I will try to create new cultivars of miniature violets and will document the process in this blog.
I will also experiment with AVs culture, trying to find the best system for my conditions. I will have to learn a lot about plants biology and genetics along the way, too.
Why blogging about such a specific topic in such a narrow niche? Well, on the one hand, I like blogging. On the other, this blog is my tool for keeping and organising records.
When I started looking for information on AVs genetics and hybridising, I found only bits and pieces here and there. And I had so many questions in the beginning!
- How soon the seeds germinate?
- Why did my seedlings stop developing?
- Are they miniatures or not?
- Why are variegated seedlings developing much slower?
- Which ones to keep until the first bloom?
And I didn’t even start pollinating yet!
Having someone’s blog about that would be a great help for me. Well, I couldn’t find it, so I started one.
