blooms on impatients

I have beautiful impatient plants but they have lost all of their blooms and now new ones are coming back. The blooms have been gone for two weeks now and the plant is very healthy looking so what is my problem?

Thanks for writing. Without being able to see your plants, I can't be sure of why they stopped blooming. Some possible reasons may include: If the plants stayed too wet or too dry for a period; if the plants were fertilized too much; if the plants were stressed in some other way; or if a pest came in and ate the blossoms.
