Azalea is a very demanding and capricious plant. For full growth and proper development of the plant, it is necessary to provide special conditions and daily competent care.
In gratitude, azalea will please you with a long and lush flowering.
Azalea feels comfortable at the temperature+ 10-15 degrees. In summer, the problem of creating a constant temperature level arises particularly acutely. That is why in most cases the plant during this period almost does not bloom. On particularly hot days, place the pot with azalea in a shaded place, avoiding sunlight.
The soil must always be moist, but not moist. Otherwise, the root system will rot and the plant will die. For irrigation use soft water. If you allowed the drying of the soil, and the azalea began to take off the leaves and buds, add lemon juice to the water - 10 drops per liter of liquid.
Another important factor affecting developmentAzalea, is high humidity. In room conditions it is difficult to maintain it at a certain level. Put a moss or a small pebble in a deep tray and fill it with water. Top with a pot of plant. In addition, azalea needs daily spraying of leaves. Moreover, the spraying must necessarily be fine, since large spots remain.
For top dressing, use only special fertilizers intended for azaleas. They contain substances that are necessary for it to fully develop.
