How to care for your Impatiens

Use these instructions to care for an Impatiens. This guide will tell you how to water an Impatiens; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.

Impatiens Patchwork Pink Shades


Impatiens will grow best in partial to full shade.


Provide your Impatiens with plenty of water as they do not like to dry out completely; water just before the soil is dry. During hot and dry times, more watering may be required, and during rainy times, less watering may be needed. Be sure to avoid splashing water on the foliage and blooms when watering, as this can cause diseases.


Fertilize once a month using a liquid fertilizer or add a slow-release fertilizer to the soil according to instructions.


If you notice your Impatiens starting to get leggy or stretched out, feel free to trim the flowers and foliage back to promote growth. They will branch out and rebloom as a result. Be sure to fertilize regularly. Impatiens will grow best in an area that is sheltered from wind exposure.
