bolting seedlings

seedlings must have poor soil to grow and the right heat.I suspect you planted them in a rich soil with too much soil,that's whats to mine when I do that or over water.

you can pick up old pots at some garden centers,that's where I get mine or from outside houses who often put things out and people around are often to glad to get rid of plastic pots if they know you require some.

I would like to point out that foxes also catch rats ,I have seen them do this while walking to the hospital on a early shift and late shift,and we have lived with them for many years with out trouble,many of the cubs are killed on the main roads and let us not forget that humans are the worst for killing,cruelty,and many crimes and including leaving mess of every sort ,litter,and the destruction of many habitats across the world.Animals are only intent on their survival .We intervene too much  and then cry when it goes wrong.

put the African violet in some john Inness soil with good drainage and a saucer .water from bottom in saucer and feed when flowering once a month.water only when really dry and do not mist although they do like a kitchen with mist from cooking but not directly on leaves.to re produce ,as above is the best advice and method.
