Russian African Violets. Hard To Start From Leaves?

PoohBearLvr

Can anyone tell me if the 'Russian' type African Violets are hard to grow from leaves? Or are the the same as 'regular' varieties??


I mean will they root and grow from leaves, AND will they bloom the same flower from leaves?? OR are they 'Chimeras'?? I only have 1, but it is HOT frilly pink with a green/white border, and the leaves are all curly. As seen in the pic. I just took off like 7 leaves and love this violet enough to TRY to grow more from leaves. BUT if it is a 'Chimera' in disguise, I am not wasting the time and effort.


Anyone know??
