Feed Azalea
During the spring months letís fertilize our bonsai plants using a specific fertilizer every 20-25 days; during this period of the year the fertilizer must be rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of new vegetation.

Care Azalea
The Azalea has a shrub- like development. The Azalea Is medium in size; in summer it assumes a redpinkwhite colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. These plants have a sapling deportment, with a short stem with a small roundish crown.

Irrigation AzaleaTenere Umido
Letís frequently check the soil of our bonsai, to avoid it from remaining dry for long periods of time. The Azalea needs to be watered quite frequently, every 1-2 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 2-3 glasses of water .

Adversity Azalea
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Substrate Azalea
We should use a specific substratum for acidophilic plants, which slightly withholds humidity.
