Can I Grow Impatiens Indoors As A Houseplant? - Knowledgebase Question

Las Vegas, NV
Question by crazy8

Living in Las Vegas, my impatiens wilted out and stopped flowering last summer (even though they were in a mostly shaded area) due to extremely high daytime temps and low humidity. I'd like to try some again and grow them indoors all year. What kind of success can I expect?

Impatiens can make a very pretty flowering houseplant. Be sure to provide it with a plenty of light (full sun is not too much during the winter) and fertilize regularly with a water soluble fertilizer for flowering plants. In my experience the shorter forms tend to make tidier plants indoors but the double flowering or rosebud types are perhaps more eye-catching.
