Firstly, they are picky about water. Water with lukewarm or tepid water that was allowed to stand for 48 hours. Water at the base or bottom and never splash the foliage with water; just a drop can cause foliar spots and damage. Water when the soil feels less moist to the touch, and never let them stand in water or completely dry out.
The soil should be a special African violet mix or make your own from peat moss, vermiculite and perlite in equal parts.
Light intensity should be filtered, with bright to medium intensity reaching the growing African violet. Light affects flowering; those with dark green foliage usually need somewhat higher light levels than those with -pale or medium green foliage. Rotate pots regularly to keep flowers from reaching for the light.
Deadhead blooms from the growing African violets when they are spent. This will encourage the development of more flowers.
