Description and uses:

Impatiens niamniamensis also called parrot impatiens or congo cockatoo is a very beautiful perennial plant from tropical Africa.
It is part of the Balsaminaceae family.
Congo cockatoo seeds are small but cannot be viable without pollination by tropical insects.
Parrot impatiens flowers bloom throughout the year.
Stem cuttings are done at the first heat of the year and in a smothered state.
Its foliage is shiny, a bit like that of the mushroom plant, it is rarely attacked by pests, which makes growing this indoor plant easier.

This very original plant measures approximately 40 to 80 cm in height, it will withstand temperatures of at least 7°C.
It grows naturally in the shape of a bonsai naturally just like jade tree.

An experiment on its hardiness was carried out in the ground by me in the Alps, the aerial part died during the winter then from the month of April the plant started again from the root system despite the -15°c.

The color of its flowers is yellow and red, which gives it a truly magnificent and above all very original look.
Parrot impatiens is certainly one of nature's most fanciful creations, along with the bird of paradise and the porcelain flower.

Planting and cultivation:

Congo cockatoo plant 10 to 20 cm high, delivered in a plug with a well-developed root system.
As soon as you receive the plant, transplant it into a 5 liter pot with horticultural soil rich in organic matter.
Water copiously when planting.
Then place your plant in a very bright place without too much direct sun and if possible at a temperature close to 25°C.

You can also grow it as an annual plant directly in the garden in a partial shade location.

  • Atypical and unusual plant to grow indoors.
  • Magnificent blooms in the shape of red and yellow parrot beaks.
  • Very little known commercially, rare plant.
  • Requires little maintenance, easy to grow.
  • Rapid growth.
  • Naturally forms a beautiful bonsai.
  • Depolluting plant.

Very rare indoor plant, ideal for greening a home whether it is an apartment, house or office.
Plant to recommend.




Ordered this beautiful plant online and came rather quickly, all the way to ireland. Was packaged beautifully and only lost one leaf in transport, the plant is big and healthy and thriving only after a few days being planted. Highly reccomend!!!

Belle plante!

Plantes reçues dans un Tupperware solide, mais trop petit. Les 2 plantes avaient été tordues pour les forcer à rentrer dans le Tupperware. Après quelques mois : L'une des 2 est devenue magnifique (mais pas encore eu de fleurs), l'autre est restée petite et tordue.

J'adore cette plante. Malheureusement je n'arrive pas a la garder. Soit les feuilles tombent ou alors la tige devient molle. Du coup je ne sais pas comment faire
