Plant in well-drained potting soil if you are re-potting into larger containers or baskets Incorporate a slow release fertilizer into the potting media if the soil you are using does not already contain fertilizer If potting soil does not contain fertilizer, apply water-soluble fertilizer at label rates 2-3 times per month Place containers or baskets in full sun or shade Water plants well after planting and keep the media evenly moist until plants are established (7-10 days) If plants wilt after they are established, simply water well and they should revive within 24 hours New leaves and new flowers will cover the old blooms so you don't need to remove old flowers or cut off older growth In most cases, SunPatiens should not be cut back to control size as it alters their natural form
In the Garden
Plant in well-drained soil, rich in organic matter such as compost Incorporate a slow release fertilizer at label rates into the soil when you plant An alternative way to fertilize is to apply water-soluble fertilizer at label rates 2-3 times per month Plant in full sun or shade Water plants well after planting and keep the media evenly moist until plants are established, which should be in 7-10 days If plants wilt after they are established, simply water well and they should revive within 24 hours In most cases, SunPatiens should not be cut back to control size as it alters their natural form but if Vigorous types get taller than desired in mid- to late summer, they can be cut back, taking off the top 1/3 of growth
Tried these for the first time this year in pots. Performed well in shade and each plant grew about 8 inches across. Flowered from later summer to early December. No mildew at all. Found them very similar to the New Guinea style
