🔆 Light
Bright light, no direct sunlight. Give your plant a turn every few days to expose all sides to light for even growth from all sides.

💧 Water
Use a pot with drainage holes and water thoroughly to wet all the roots. Empty drainage tray so that plant isn't sitting in water. Don't let it dry out, if allowed to dry out, foliage shrivels and flowers wilt.

To give your plant the absolute best, room-temperature rainwater and bottled spring water are your best options. Any water containing sugar or salt will hurt your plant!

☁️ Humidity
Moderate or high. Don't mist with water because misting can lead to fungus. It's best to use a cool-mist room humidifier to raise moisture in the air around your houseplants.

🌡️ Temperature
Cool to average room temperatures (16-21°C).

🧴️ Food
Fertilize Azaleas during the growing season will keep them healthy and flowering. Feed every 1 month with a high-phosphorus fertilizer that contains iron. Yellow leaves with green veins are a sign of a nutrient deficiency caused by too much lime.

🐾 Toxicity
Toxic to Dogs, Cats, and Horses if ingested in large quantity.

Additional Tips
To maintain a more compact appearance or simply to encourage bushier growth, trim azaleas after their blooming period has expired. Taking time to trim azaleas by cutting back the branches of these shrubs will also help renew overgrown plants.

● Do Not Overwater! This will cause leaf drop and root rot that eventually could kill the plant. The worst thing you can do regarding watering is "give it too much".
● Make sure your plant is not placed near Heat or AC source. It is best to keep consistent room temperature throughout the seasons and not turn off Heat or AC when away or traveling. The best temperature ratio for almost any plant is (15°C-24°C).
