Violet is a stunning plant with flowers that represent noble purple. These beautiful flowers can grow on a small violet, making them very pleasing to the eye.

There are many varieties of violets, and they come in different heights, which can be divided into three categories: tall, medium, and short. The tall ones can grow up to 50-70 centimeters, the medium ones can grow up to about 40 centimeters, and the short ones can only grow up to 20 centimeters.

The flowering period of violets generally lasts from three to five months, and the fruit ripening period is from June to July.

Native to southern Europe, violets are very popular and loved in European and American countries. Their flowers have a faint fragrance, and Europeans use them to make perfume, which is very popular among women.

In southern Germany, during the Middle Ages, there was a custom of hanging the first bunch of newly picked violets on the mast of the ship every year to celebrate the return of spring to the world.

Legend has it that the first violets were not purple; they were only blue, which was close to purple. Later, after careful cultivation by a master gardener, purple violets as beautiful as smoke was produced.

This color is as unreal as a dream, as beautiful and fleeting as love. But because this is a cultivated color, the flower language also means "carefully guarded love".

The violet is considered a symbol of loyalty, strength, and love. In ancient Greek mythology, the violet was created by Apollo and Terena. They represent loyalty and strength, as they can grow and bloom through harsh winters. In addition, violets are also considered the messenger of love.

Violet also plays an essential role in literature. In the novel "A Tale of Two Cities" by British novelist Charles Dickens, the heroine Lucy's long hair and eye color are related to violet. These adjectives highlight Lucy's beauty and tenderness and emphasize her purity and goodness.

Here are some cultivation methods and precautions for violets:

1. Soil requirements

When potting violets, use loose, breathable, and fertile soil, which can be mixed with humus soil, peat soil, and river sand. Alternatively, use some mulch, garden soil, cinder, compost, etc. to mix evenly and make the cultivation soil, which can meet the growing needs of violets.

2. Temperature requirements

Violets like a warm environment. The most suitable growth temperature is 16-24 degrees, and too high or too low temperature is not conducive to the growth of violets.

Therefore, when cultivating violets, it is necessary to manage the temperature carefully, pay attention to cooling when the temperature is high, and take heat preservation measures when the temperature is low.

3. Watering management

When watering violets, be careful not to water them frequently, or it will easily cause the root system of violets to rot.

When watering, be careful not to pour water on the leaves, or the leaves are also prone to rot. Water each time based on the dryness and humidity of the potting soil. After the soil is completely dry, water it until it is slightly moist.

4. Scientific fertilization

Violet is a fertilizer-loving plant, so pay attention to supplementing nutrients during the vigorous growth period.

Apply some flower fertilizers containing nitrogen and phosphorus elements at intervals of half a month, which can effectively promote the growth of violets. But at other times, fertilizer control can be done appropriately.
