Has anyone grown pansies indoors? I brought some in last weekend and they don't seem to be doing very well. Maybe it's too warm inside.

I had wonderful blooms with seed-started Morning Glories placed at the base of a large inside tree. Large blue type worked the best. The only other outside plants doing ok are sedums.
Had no luck with Pansies.

You can grow Pansies indoors, but its a tricky endeavor. I've tried with mixed success. The success was in the spring and summer. Winter was less than lackluster.

From my experience they need lots of sunlight, so a bright window is a must. They also need moist soil. This is the hardest part. You need to check the soil moisture often. Then there's the dreaded overwatering! There's a balance in there somewhere. Well drained, rich soil is a must. I've even fertilized on occasion. Using established plants was pretty easy (I've never grown from seed), but keeping them alive into the next season was the challenge. And getting flowers again? A complete failure unless I put them outside and, even then, it was a mixed bag.

In conclusion, if you want Pansies indoors purchase plants in the spring and do as I said. Toss them after the season and start over each year. Its just not worth the effort. Of course, you might find the perfect microclimate and have more success. Good luck!
