Tips for Growing an Azalea Houseplant
Azalea may be grown inside just like any other houseplant, but as with other flowering plants, there are a few things to know about indoor azalea care if you want to keep them blooming year after year.
Many producers export azaleas in transparent plastic sleeves as houseplants. These sleeves are designed to protect the plant during shipment, but they also trap ethylene gas, inducing leaf drop. Thus, remove them from your azalea as soon as you bring them home.
Care of Indoor Azalea
These plants thrive in the understory of tall trees in their natural habitat. They thrive in the indirect, cold sunlight. Azaleas thrive at colder temperatures, ideally between 16-18 C. In warm and in humid country like Singapore, they last up to 4 weeks when place in sheltered indoor environment. Cooler temperatures (air-conditioning) will also extend the life of the blooms. Maintain adequate lighting while keeping them out of direct sunlight.
Moisture should be your first concern while caring for indoor azaleas. Never let your plant dry out. While watering from the top may be adequate, Don’t allow these plants to dry out under any circumstances. Keep them wet but not soggy, and don’t fertilize them until the blossoming period is through.
