    Yu may want to rescue this Violet by removing it from its current pot, and replant it into a smaller one, and let it semi dry out.... also cut off the largest leaflets... and give it a bright window for light.... do not keep the soil wet!

    African Violets do not like to be watered from the top .. have a somewhat deep saucer under it and water it that way .. they are good about sucking the water up ..
    watering from the top and water touching the leaves can kill it ...
