In this regard, how do you treat impatiens in pots?
- The most important thing to remember about impatiens plants is to water them regularly. Keep them moist, but not too wet. If the plants dry out, they will lose their leaves. If you over-water the plants, this could encourage fungal diseases.
- Remember container plants will need more water.
Likewise, how many impatiens can you plant in a window box? The most common variety in the United States, Impatiens walleriana, is easy to maintain, grows well in containers, and comes in a wide range of colors like pink, red, purple, orange, and yellow. Available on Burpee; $6.29 for 30 seeds and $25.99 for 12 plants.
Similarly one may ask, how deep do you plant impatiens?
Impatiens seeds are planted in indoor containers in a growing medium of one part peat moss to one part vermiculite, at a depth of 1/2 inch.
Can impatiens be grown as a houseplant?
Indoor Culture Although these plants are known for their ability to thrive in shady conditions, this does not hold true for impatiens grown as houseplants. Indoor impatiens need plenty of bright light. They also need rich, well-draining soil, so make sure that your container has drainage holes on the bottom.
