We recommend planting your violet directly into the top portion of the pot. We do have some customers who have said that they leave it in the plastic container and it does just fine.

Your violet should not be too dry or soggy, but evenly moist. Add 1 to 2" of potting soil to the pot, then take your violet out of its present container. Plant it into the top and press down to compact the soil. Fill the bowl as directed with water and enjoy!
