Impatiens walleriana

Guinean joys, also called New Guinea Hybrids, are very colorful flowers and are therefore pretty to have in the garden. The scientific name of these flowers is Impatiens hawkeri and they are the younger sisters of the popular house joys (Impatiens walleriana).
Guinean joys are herbaceous plants native to New Guinea, which develop green, bronze or reddish, simple, lanceolate leaves. They reach a height of about 20 to 30 centimeters, and their flowers are of different colors: pink, red, white, yellow. They bloom from spring to summer, after which they produce fruits with seeds before dying.
It is a plant that needs to be watered when it is hot, but avoid wetting it when it is not sunny because then mold may appear on the leaves and flowers. Watering should be abundant but avoid letting the roots become waterlogged because then they will rot. Watering should be abundant in summer and scarce in winter.
A faster way to get new specimens is to cut stems and introduce them in a glass of water. This water should be changed daily, and once it has roots, the plant should be planted in a pot with substrate or in the garden.

Zamioculcas es un género de plantas con flores de la familia Araceae, que contiene la única especie Zamioculcas zamiifolia. Es una planta tropical perenne originaria de África oriental, desde el sur de Kenia hasta el noreste de Sudáfrica. Los nombres comunes incluyen gema de Zanzíbar, planta ZZ, planta Zuzu, palma androide, planta de la eternidad y palma esmeralda[2] Se cultiva como planta ornamental, principalmente por su atractivo follaje brillante y su fácil cuidado.
Los viveros holandeses iniciaron la propagación comercial a gran escala de la planta alrededor de 1996[3] Fue descrita por primera vez como Caladium zamiifolium por Loddiges en 1829, trasladada a su nuevo género Zamioculcas por Heinrich Wilhelm Schott y se le dio su nombre establecido Zamioculcas zamiifolia por Adolf Engler.
Las raíces de la planta son rizomas, lo que explica que la planta sea tolerante a la sequía, ya que los rizomas almacenan agua que la planta puede utilizar posteriormente. Por tanto, la planta debe regarse sólo cuando esté seca para evitar el exceso de agua. Requieren un buen sistema de drenaje y pueden vivir con luz solar de moderada a indirecta. La falta de luz solar puede indicarse por el alargamiento de las hojas.

Nativity plant

The genus Impatiens comprises more than 500 species of annual or perennial plants, which all of us have owned at least once. They belong to the Balsaminaceae family and their name derives from the Latin impatiens.
They are native to tropical East Africa and are not only particularly prized for the variety, beauty and abundance of their flowers but also because they are easy to grow, fast-growing and not very susceptible to disease.
They have rather fleshy stems. The flowers can be round, flattened, solitary, double, or associated in inflorescences. They can be of varied colors: of a single color, irregularly marbled or rich in shades.
The fruits are capsules that open at the slightest touch making real launches. In fact, when the seeds are ripe, the capsule dries, the five relative valves into which it is subdivided elongate like an elastic that at the slightest touch «bursts» throwing away the seeds.
The Impatiens that we find in commerce are really many, of form and colors of the most diverse due to the numerous hybrids that little by little have been selected and almost all are hybrids of Impatiens walleriana that are treated as annuals.
