Impatiens dropping flowers and buds

Impatiens dropping flowers and buds

I bought myself an impatiens the other day. It had a few flowers in full bloom and lots of little white buds. When I brought it home, I made the mistake of putting it in sunshine. The flowers dried up, and then a bunch of buds fell off. I put it in a shady area and gave it a fair bit of water. However, when I touched other buds with my finger, they came off just like that. *pout* So now it has no flowers and no buds. What did I do wrong? How can I get it to bloom again?

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AS THE PREVIOUS WRITER WROTE (WHICH I AM LISING BELOW):

    You have to put it in the dark earlier, so it has long nights, it’s a short day blooming plant
