Looking after your Azaleas
Azaleas are very popular houseplants because they provide fabulous flowers with very little effort. These Azaleas have been raised to live inside, keep them cool and damp and they will reward you with flowers for several weeks.
For best results place your plant near a window or skylight. Indirect light is best and the cooler the room is, the longer the flowers will last.
Azaleas are thirsty plants, the warmer the room, the more they will drink. Water thoroughly from the top several times a week and let the excess drain away. If you are going away on holiday, to be sure the plant does not dry out, stand it in a shallow saucer of water.
To keep your plant looking good, cut off dead flowers and brush off dead petals. Azaleas can be planted out in the garden once they have finished flowering and should settle in for a repeat performance next season. Azaleas do prefer an acidic soil but, if this is not possible in the ground, they can be potted into a large pot of ericaceous compost.
Drooping or flower drop is due to lack of water so give your plant a good drink and it will soon recover.
