African violets not doing well under lights

10 years ago

I have 3 AV's. Just getting into them. I have a couple areas to try to keep them. One is in an atrium in the house which gets diffused light. So far in there I'm having luck with ferns, spider plants, begonias and a few others. My one AV in there looks ok but the leaves look a bit light green but they are thick and growing proper.

The two in the bathroom under artificial lights is another matter and this is my concern. The leaves are very dark green but they are growing upward. I'm reading that that means they need MORE light. The light is about 14 inches from the plants. Is that too high? Or do I need a different light?? It's a grow light made for house plants.
