|A neighbor gave me a hanging pot of new guieni
impatiens in full bloom.
I keep it in some sun but
mostly shade, water it
everyday and do not over-
fertilize. When the flowers it came with fell
off, it never bloomed again. What could be the
reason. It looks very healthy. Should I be pulling off old growth?

|Your plant will produce more flowers if it gets at least 2 hours of morning sunshine each day in the summertime and full sun in the winter months. You don't need to remove the dead flowers - they will drop off by themselves. They flower best from fall through spring and then flower only sporadically in the hot summer months. Your plant will take a little rest from blooming and once it has rested it will develop new flowers. Just be patient with your plant. Enjoy!|
