This plant will need extra height blocks for your Plantui in addition to the default 2 blocks which the device is shipped with. We recommend that you get at least one blooming light block in addition to the regular height blocks
How to cut: Cut off any withered flowers to allow the violas to grow new ones. See pruning guide here.
When to eat: Use the open flowers immediately after cutting them.
Violets germinate in 6-9 days and the first flowers can be expected 5-6 weeks after sowing. Violets enjoy a cool room temperature and grow best at about 20-23 degrees Celsius.
Violets bloom for a long time and when you pick off the withered flowers, new ones appear quicker. To ensure long and abundant flowering, we recommend using the Blooming Light Block. Place it at the same level with the buds and flowers.
Flowers should be picked no later than a few days after they have opened. Use the flowers soon after picking, since they will wither quickly. If you pick the flowers but do not use them immediately, they will keep for a few days in a cool place, protected from light in an airtight container.
Cut off any withered flowers to allow the violet to grow new ones.
The recommended growing time is approximately 8-10 weeks.
