Also known as Saintpaulias, African Violets are beautiful perennial flowering plants that are native to Tanzania and the southeastern part of Kenya in eastern tropical Africa. Many gardeners have them as outdoor plants but they’re typically kept indoors. Their native habitats are fog forests, which can be referred to as mossy or cloud forests, and they are characterized by frequent low-level cloud cover at the canopy level. All the moisture makes the environment an ideal place for growing plants, though unfortunately many of these forests are affected by the climate change and being cleared for agricultural purposes. Taking care of African violets can seem intimidating for some since they require a rather specific type of care compared to other plants. Read how to care for them in the source.
