Africian Violet Blooming Again

I really enjoy this violet plant. It blooms about every 3 - 4 months, the blooms last for about a month, it likes Mircle Grow for a treat once in awhile, and it is 7 years old! Wonder how old that is in plant years?

This is one side of the plant,

This is the other side, although it looks like a separate plant, its not.  The  blooms start out dark purple and them they get this verigated look.

Now I do have it in a special Africian Violet pot.  It is a pot within a pot, with the inner pot having a porous bottom, this way the plant always get watered from the bottom.  NEVER water them at the top of the plant.  I really think this is the secret to it's success.
