will my impatient flower survive the winter if I replant it into a pot and bring indoors?

Impatiens will grow indoors if given a bright location (near a south facing window). They like average household temperatures (65=75 degrees) and should be watered regularly. You can dig the plant up or you can take stem tip cuttings to take indoors. Impatiens root easily from tip cuttings if planted in moistened potting soil. Either way, your impatiens should continue to bloom for you indoors if it receives adequate light. I think it's worth a try!
