African Violets

African Violets

Today I went to the supermarket. They were selling african violets for $2 per pot, and I just couldn't help myself, I brought one home. They looked so sad. So now I need some help from you all. After prowling the nets for info (the discounted plants came with no care instructions), I have a couple of questions. 1) How do I know when it is time to re-pot? For that matter, can I just put it in a bigger pot, instead of doinng all the cutting described in the couple of growers websites I visited? 2) Does anyone here recomend an organic/natural way to fertilze them? Compost? Fish emulsion? Any success stories?
