These plants have full double (rosebud-type) flowers on plants bred to grow full and compact. They hold their blooms up on top of the foliage (not under a leaf.) Our select series are proven varieties with superior genetics for horticulture use. Double Impatiens are also available in URC (unrooted cuttings).
Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately
and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage
of fertilizer until well rooted.
Grow in medium light and well-drained soil. Keep the pH of the soil between 5.5 and 6.5. To grow the best plant never feed at more than 150 ppm nitrogen. Florel at young stage of plants perhaps 2 weeks after planting is good to promote lateral branching. Florel may defoliate older plants so be careful. Watch for spider mites and thrips. These plants are susceptible to fungi and viral diseases.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely
in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
