Watering is crucial for the success of double impatiens. Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. Regularly check the moisture level of the soil and adjust your watering schedule accordingly. Applying a layer of mulch around the plants can help retain moisture and prevent weed growth.

Simply pinch off the wilted flowers at the base to promote continuous flowering throughout the season.
