African Violet suckers-Prone African Violets?

Hi there,
I was just wondering if there are African Violet types that tend to sucker more than others-or if there's some environmental reason? Currently I have two Itchy Britches, one Rob's Cool Fruit, all three have 2-3 suckers on them. Also pulled one from a Russian Mavka. The Itchy Britches and Cool fruit are now blooming for their first time, and the Mavka had bloomed for it's first time too when I found these suckers. I do plan on cutting these off and planting, just wondering if there's some resource where I can go to see what I can expect. I have about 15 varieties-and haven't seen any of the others do this so readily.

Thanks for any insight!

Best,
Judy
