Plant: African Violet (Saintpaulia) |

Received two leaves of this violet from Barb in trade. It was a long time in transit, but the leaves looked good when they arrived. I placed the stems in some water, and will let them rehydrate for 24-48 hours before potting up.

I can find only two AVs with a name that contains Meteor – Perreault Meteor and Ultra Violet Meteor. They are quite different, so if it is one of these two, it will be easy to tell when it blooms. In the meantime, I’ll try to find more information.

Perreault Météor (C. Perreault) Semidouble purple/darker fantasy, variable white edge. Variegated dark green and white, quilted. Standard

Ultra Violet Meteor (8372) 02/23/1996 (Green Circle/Blansit) Single white sticktite pansy/dark blue ruffled edge. Medium green, plain. Standard

Meteor Showers (8533) 11/09/1996 (S. Sorano) Semidouble medium blue star/pink and rose fantasy. Dark green, ovate, quilted/red back. Large

I just added a photo from the woman who sent me the leaves of Meteor in bloom. It doesn’t look like either of these descriptions.
