- Pink Texas Skullcap only has a few blooms and green stems. Most of the plant looks dry and feels brittle? Breaks very easily! I read they are drought resistant. It is in a container, gets mostly sun and watered mildly.

- New Guinea Impatiens in two different pots. One is doing great! Other one is slightly wilted and dropped blooms. Is the sadder looking one being overwatered?? They are in the same location, same amount of morning sun. Containers have drainage holes.

Can you post some photos so we can see what you're talking about?
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Yes I can!! Here are some pics of my better looking Impatiens, and then the poor sad impatiens :(. The container I bought came with 3...so I've got 2 (the good looking ones) in one pot and a single one in the sad pot.

Then my skullcap has only a small amount of stems with green on them! The rest are SUPER brittle. I could easily break them off.
