This month we are having a hands-on meeting. We are going to look in on our
project plants so please bring them. Our main focus will be our leaf swap. We
will learn various techniques and methods for starting new plants from leaves
and we will pot up our leaves. If you have any plants that need repotted we can
help with that as well. Please bring 7 baggies containing 7 different varieties of
African violet leaves (2 leaves of each standard violet and 3 leaves for minis and
semi-minis in each bag). Please attach a slip of paper to each bag with the
violet's name, flower color and any other known information such as mini, trailer,
standard, etc). You can use the First Class program if you have it to print the
labels with appropriate information. We plan to exchange or swap 6 sets of
leaves for each person. The 7th set will be for guests or anyone that forgot their
leaves. Feel free to bring extra bags of leaves and even gesneriad leaves for
others if you like. Also, please bring newspapers or tablecloths to protect the
tables. Also, bring solo cups or other containers and your favorite soil, potting
tools, and other supplies to pot up your leaves and/or transplant your plants.
The AVCO store will be open and you are welcome to purchase supplies and pots
if you need to. The members always enjoy the hands on meetings! Delicious
refreshments are served. For more information please call Linda at
352-351-3639. Guests are always welcome!
