What is the best way to water an African Violet? Two weeks ago I bought an African Violet that came in a plastic pot and repot it to one of those double self watering ceramic pot. When I repot it, I water it and as far as I remember no water came from the bottom (remember that this ceramic pot donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have drainage holes). I havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t water since because I can fell the soil moist. My question is how do you water African Violet when they are in this type of self watering pots and how often?
