Feed Azalea indica
During the spring letís regularly use a fertilizer rich with nitrogen and potassium to favour the development of the new vegetation; fertilization is done by adding fertilizer to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days.

Irrigation Azalea indicaTenere Umido
Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 1-2 weeks can be enough using 2-3 glasses of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering. It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases.

Temperatures Azalea indicaPosizione mezza ombra
We suggest locating the vases in a pretty bright place, although avoiding direct sunlight, which could damage the foliage. Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.These plants don't like the cold weather during this time of year. If the minimum night-time temperatures are very harsh it is best to cover the the Azalea indica with non-woven fabric.

Adversity Azalea indica
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Substrate Azalea indica
For a correct development of these plants itís necessary to cultivate them in a quite drained soil with an acid PH. Every 2-3 years letís remember to repot our plants in a larger container.
