3 weeks since I started propagating my impatiens niamniamensis (congo cockatoo) Photo showing comparison of the one rooted in water and the two rooted straight into the soil. Very fast and successful propagation! #impatiens #niamniamensis #impatiensniamniamensis #congocockatoo #parrotimpatiens #balsaminaceae #parrotplant #parrotsbeak #propagation #propagate #plantlets

3 weeks since I started propagating my impatiens niamniamensis (congo cockatoo) Rooted this one in water and it rooted so quickly but came home from work one day to find them covered in algae so had to chop most of the roots off and put it into soil. Is alot smaller then the ones I rooted straight to soil #impatiens #niamniamensis #impatiensniamniamensis #congocockatoo #parrotimpatiens #balsaminaceae #parrotplant #parrotsbeak #propagation #waterpropogation #propagate #plantlets

Please help me identify (not the actual plant) this unusual looking flower/pod! Is it a seed pod? There are 3 of them growing and they look different from the flowers, the plant has been under alot of stress recently as well. What could it be? #impatiens #niamniamensis #impatiensniamniamensis #congocockatoo #parrotimpatiens #balsaminaceae #parrotplant #parrotsbeak #seed #seed-advice #seedpod #advice #help

It is a beautiful plant, so so easy to propagate aswell, I chopped 3 cuttings - 1 stem which I rooted in water, also chopped the tops off two of the stems with fresh leaf growth and rooted them in soil. All have been incredibly successful and have grown so fast! Will post some pics x

The scientific name is Impatiens niamniamensis and looking at google images there is a little flower where the green pods are now on your photo, so I am guessing that they are indeed seed pods. I haven't been able to gain info on the seed collection other than fresh seeds are difficult to obtain, so hopefully you ( and I!) and collect seed from these amazing plants. Mine are also starting to look like yours , so it must be a good sign! Good luck.I will post further info if I find it.

A friend thinks they are young flower buds, so divided opinion! If you do get seeds, do let me know. Thanks
