Broken leaves are caused by some form of physical trauma. For instance, it may be that a pet or child has been interacting with your Violet in ways that are not particularly friendly. Or it may be that someone has accidentally knocked the plant over and has not told you. In many cases, it will simply be enough to know that your Violet has suffered some form of trauma, even if you cannot pinpoint the exact source. In one particular case, however, it will be very important to identify the source. For this reason, mice are listed separately under the list of possible causes.
You may either view the list of possible causes, or select from the list of additional symptoms in order to narrow down your search.
Note: Broken leaves should be distinguished as a specific instance of damaged leaves. The kinds of damage, which leaves may suffer, varies broadly. Broken leaves are just one kind of damage.
