Impatiens tinctoria dormancy

timed(z6 NY)July 5, 2011

My Impatiens tinctoria was growing well over the winter in my cool (55 to 60F) basement under a High Intensity light with other tropicals I overwinter. Sometime in May it appeared to go dormant - lost leaves but stems stayed firm and appeared green. It was put outside in June but has not started to grow again, although its roots appear white and healthy. Is there anything I can do to break its dormancy? Thanks!!

Did this ever come out of dormancy?

Yes, it finally started to put out new growth last summer(2011) and has not gone dormant since. No flowers yet - hoping for this summer!
