african violet problem

african violet problem
Posted by H. Wyatt from 45701 on 2009-01-19 11:01:00

I am experiencing puckered leaves on three of my plant varieties after moving to Athens OH a couple years ago. I am suspecting the water, but not sure. The african violets are most effected. Leaves get puckered and new leaves are malformed. It doesn't seem to effect blooming. I have noticed this, but in a lesser way on sweddish ivey and hibiscus, but nothing similar on any of my other plants. I am currently experimenting by watering with rain water. I was also told that water out of my dehumidifier might be similar to distilled water and help. Can anyone offer any suggestions as to what this problem may be and how I could eliminate it.
