How do I get started?

You will be the consultant on African violets. If you belong to an AV club get the endorsement of the club to support you with leaves, used light stands and timers etc. You will have to get sufficient leaves started during the summer to ensure that you meet the Motherís Day deadline with flowering plants. If the school does not have a light stand you might want to try building one from PVC pipe. You will have to visit the class every two or three weeks to give the kids instructions, answer questions and check on how their plants are growing.
