Wilting New Guinea Impatien
I bought a beautiful pink New Guinea Impatiens approx 2 weeks ago, and potted it in a terra cotta pot the next day. We had 2 really hot days (mid-upper 90's); it looked really wilty after the first day. I watered it well and brought it inside. It perked up the next day, looked fine for 2 or 3 days; now it's wilted again; doesn't look good. It was sitting on my deck on the north side in the shade of the deck from the apt above mine. I fertilized it twice; potted in drought resistant soil.
Most New Guinea impatiens are rather sensitive to moisture stress. Once wilted, they sometimes never recover completely. You did the right thing by watering immediately and moving it to a shadier location. If you're lucky, the plant might recover.
