The silent killer

Picture this:
I'm sitting at the kitchen table, reading the paper, as Elijah happily toddles around the kitchen and lounge room. Sporadically he comes to cuddle my leg. After one particular cuddle, I can sense he's still behind my chair, but I haven't heard anything. I turn around to talk to him and see that Vi is once again sitting out of her pot! There is no mistaking the culprit: Elijah has dirt on his hands!

Poor Vi! She's been through so much. I have replanted her (again!) but hope is fading that she will survive this latest attack from her mortal enemy. She was still looking rather green and healthy, but I don't know how much longer this will last.

If anyone can suggest a nice sunny spot inside that isn't the windowsill (too narrow for her pot) or on the floor by the glass sliding door (her current home), she and I would be very grateful.

Oh poor Vi! Um, where else do you have windows? LOL!! Mum always kept her African Violet on the TV, it didn't even get sunlight and still survived hehe.

HAve you thought of getting one of those plant hangers and suspending Vi from the cealing?
