Tips for growing and flowering in Balsam -
1) soil mixture is very important. Many Balsam plants die off due to improper fertilization and soil. If the soil is not well draining and too mushy the soft delicate roots of balsam die off.
2) watering with care, never skip watering during flowering times. Over watering is harmful as the roots leave the soil and the plant topples out of the container. It is important to remember that these plants grow in hilly regions where the water drains off on the hilly slopes.
3) the plant when full of blooms becomes heavy and needs to be tied for support when grown in small containers. It is better to keep it trimmed and in shape to give healthy blooms.
4) Adding regular fertilizer available in nurseries is required just before summers to see great blooms. You may also add a few used tea leaves for better flowering.
