Can impatiens flowers be kept indoors, or do they need to have light to grow? I see their seedlings thrive with light and they always seem to have lots of buds at the end of the summer. I want to know if it is possible to grow them indoors and will they flower this year. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

ANSWER:

When you buy your plants in late spring you can plant them out as soon as you get home. It is normal for them to bloom in late summer. Your question says if you can grow it indoors, that would be difficult because I do not know of any species of impatiens that can be successfully grown in indoor pots.

They will bloom all summer long if you plant them outside in the Spring. Outdoor or indoor, I would just be careful with the soil. If the plants do not get enough light it will be fine, they are usually happy with less light.

You might want to use a glass container. The ones that are aluminum or have styrofoam inside will leach out lead, which can be toxic for house plants. They also tend to be more porous, which can result in the plants becoming root bound.

QUESTION:

Indoor impatiens vase?

I planted some impatiens last year and I don't know how to keep them alive. Any thoughts? I only plant them in pots (not the traditional pots), but do you know of any pots that are good for this? Any tips or tricks?

ANSWER:

After planting, you must give them plenty of light and humidity. Don't let them dry out. Also, be careful of fertilizing and potting on potting soil. It will dry out too quickly. Instead, use a soil that retains moisture well and keeps the soil evenly moist.

QUESTION:

Will impatiens bloom indoors?

I have 4 indoor pots. Will it bloom for me? Thanks.

ANSWER:

I have Impatiens too. I haven't planted them yet. Just looking for advice. I have one potted plant that is a huge clump and 5 others that are small. All of them come from local nurseries. They grow slowly but they are growing like crazy and seem to be growing a lot in one week than I would have expected. Do they need to be in the full sun or can they be in the light shade of my room?

QUESTION:

Can impatiens be grown in pots?

I bought a large pink pot several months ago. I am just wondering if Impatiens can be grown in them? I have tried one but it has not bloomed. I also like to hear from others. Thanks.

ANSWER:

I have this from one source - it is for indoor growing. I have tried both potted and in the ground but they seem to thrive better if given a minimum of 12 hours. I would not say it is absolutely not possible as long as you give the plant enough light.

QUESTION:

Dumb question, but what do the different colors of impatiens mean?

I have about 7 large white ones, 4 medium pink ones, 2 medium red ones, and one large red one. I bought them at a local grocery store. All of them look very healthy. I am thinking of dividing my biggest red one, and dividing the pink and white ones into 4-5 groups of 3 each. I'm thinking of moving all of them outdoors for winter if possible. What do the different colors mean? I'm planning to do a fairly large 'garden' type setup with plenty of seating and a nicely lighted patio area. I'd love to make it even more colorful. What color do you think would be best for my purposes?

ANSWER:

From your list of colors, it would seem you have the same impatiens. If they are grown in the ground or a container, they would have been labeled either potted or cuttings. If the one you purchased is labeled as potted, then you would have a lower risk of your impatiens being root bound in the long run.

QUESTION:

How do you plant a plant so that you can have a nice display?

Right now my impatiens are planted in soil in 2 pots. I'd like to plant them in a bigger area, and I have some plants in pots (like 'Single Duchess'?) that I'd like to put around them.

Can you put plants like this all around the plants in the pots? I really don't want the plants with the bigger pots next to them because it'll block the light they need. Can you put plants like these around them?

ANSWER:

In a few places you may be able to set plants aside with bigger pots, but it is not recommended as it blocks the light. I would encourage you to give your pots a larger size so they don't crowd your impatiens. It is normal for impatiens to grow fast.

QUESTION:

What variety should I plant?

I have a huge clump of impatiens in a 5 gallon container. I have moved this to my patio and it has done so great. It grows so fast that in 2 months there is at least one flower every day. It grows out from the container. I just want to know if it's called gaiwanensis or somewhere else.

It blooms very nice!
