Optimara Super Miniatures in the Self-Watering MiniWell

Optimara Super Miniature Violets are available by themselves, with 1-inch pot and saucer (Item# 10000), or in the popular, self-watering MiniWell (Item# 10020). The Optimara MiniWell is the original self-watering device for super Optimara MiniWellminiature Violets. It employs the patented Optimara Wicklock to provide super miniature Violets with the just the right amount of water.

All Optimara Super Miniature Violets are shipped in a convenient counter display. The display takes seconds to set up, and with one of the holiday or special occasion headers, it offers a simple and attractive way to merchandise your Optimara super miniatures.


Violets-Do-Windows (Item# 10024) is a unique Optimara innovation that gives customers more ways to grow and care for Optimara Super Miniatures. Violets-Do-Windows features an Optimara MiniWell which has been equipped with a durable-hold suction cup. Where growing space is limited, Violets-Do-Windows allows the MiniWell to simply be adhered to a window or any other smooth, flat surface. While novel in concept, Violets-Do-Windows offers customers a very practical solution. It's one more way that Optimara makes growing African Violets so easy and fun to do.
