Fertilize 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.

Water Azalea indicaTenere Umido
Water regularly, every 1-2 weeks , wetting the soil deeply with about 2-3 glasses of water ,but waiting for the substratum to dry completely between one watering and another; avoid leaving stagnant water. It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases.

Light Azalea indicaPosizione mezza ombra
We suggest locating the vases in a pretty bright place, although avoiding direct sunlight, which could damage the foliage. Avoid excessively sunny places; we suggest to put the the in a partially shady spot.These plants are rustic in the areas with a Mediterranean climate, therefore they can be grown outside.

Pests 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.

Mold 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.
