African Violets

(Question)

I wondered if the little Yellow Centres on these plants are seeds and should I save them when pruning my plant? thankyou Audrey

Thank you for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners.

What I suspect you are referring to is actually referred to as the anther (the male part) of the African violet flower.   If you wish to propogate your African violet, you can do so by taking a leaf cutting.  Further information on how to do this can be found on the African Violet Society of Canada website here:

African violets, also know by their botanical name, Saintpaulia, make beautiful houseplants.   I hope that you continue to enjoy yours (along with any new ones that you propagate) for years to come!
