How to rescue drowned African violets

4 months ago
last modified: 4 months ago

My pet sitter accidentally drowned two of my African violets that were in pot within a pot containers. They are from a violet from my late mother, so I really want to save them. I've taken two cuttings to root, but would like to know if I should try repotting them now. Or should I just try to dry them out in their existing pots.

Steps taken:

1. drained as much water as I could out.

2. am keeping them out of their outer pots and on a rack to get the most airflow.

3. Have just moved them into a room that has a ceiling fan going on high and are in front of a window to again get light and a lot of airflow.

Thanks for any advice.
