An e-pal from Nigeria sent me some stones from African soil, along with some interesting snail shells - biggies, lemme' tell ya' - I'd hate to see the snails . . .
I do have a fake African Violet that looks very real, but I want to do the real thing.
I got one from the fruit store the other day. I want to do an arrangement in a basket - keep the violet itself in its container, put some of my sedum in the soil, amongst the rocks and snails.
I think I'll have to settle for keeping them in the office window, 'cause my window in apartment isn't deep enough.
Can I keep it outside on a ledge under the balcony roof of the apartment above us? I know the leaves don't like to get wet - so I'm wondering if it would be safe there.
I'll post a picture of the arrangement when I've done it.
