Why won't my variegated impatiens flower?
Queensland, Australia, Australia
It's a healthy plant - no pests. But while it can be covered in little buds they simply fall off and there are no flowers. I've had this plant for some time now - around 6 months. It was trimmed back and re-potted about 2 months ago and now it's back at the budding stage - the same thing is happening.
I've had impatiens for many years (never a variegated one though) and have never had any trouble like this. They are kept in the same growing conditions as all the other impatiens in my greenhouse - there was no indication that it needed any special treatment.
