[flower] Yeaaaa! My violets arrived this evening [clappy] ... They are such cute little things. I am currently re-potting them into these clear 9oz solo cups. And had 2 questions. Do I remove the mother leaf?
and some of the leaves have fallen off. Could I use these the grow new ones or are they to young?

Good for you!

I personally would leave the mother leaf on, until the plants have a chance to settle in a bit. I have never tried to start new plants from baby leaves, so I don't know if that will work or not. Barleychown may be able to tell you though. make sure your solo cups have holes in the bottom for drainage.
