: Impatients just fall over at the ground? I have the same problem and have no answer, thats why I am on here looking. I have sparyed around the base with a bug killer, added slug bait and even sprinkled bug grandulars on the ground and I am in fear there will still be more gone tomorrow. Nothing seems to help, what could it be, they just wilt and right at the root it is real mushy ....HELP! From Texas
My impatients are doing the same thing and after careful study it seems that ants are the culprit. They seem to go after the root and are destroying my entire garden of patients one by one.
