Azalea

Azalea

 

Origin: Asian hybrids.

Botanical Name: Rhododendron, Rosebay.

Throughout the world, this flower stands for love and gentleness, making it perfect to give to a loved one for any occasion. The Azalea speaks of taking care of yourself and everlasting beauty.

☀️  Light: 

Bright light, no direct sunlight.

💧 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. If allowed to dry out, foliage shrivels and flowers wilt.

☁️  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
