The Azalea (Rhododendron simsii) is a stunning flowering plant part of the Ericaceae family native to China and Japan. It is probably the most popular indoor blooming plant given the bountiful amount of flowers it yields.

Its growth is bushy and its foliage green and persistent. It produces simple or double blooms, either red, pink or white, which will most likely open almost all at the same time! You will therefore have the impression of having a little piece of garden… indoors!

MAINTENANCE

The Azalea thrives of humidity. To be happy inside, it requires good indirect light. When potted, its soil should always be moist and well drained, especially during summer months. The watering frequency may vary depending on the humidity level in the room and the season. Its foliage appreciates being misted, especially during winter months. It is best to avoid misting the blooms; they may shrivel prematurely when in contact with droplets. 

When you take possession of your plant, make sure you assess its watering needs. Before you give it a drink the first time, check the soil’s moisture level to verify whether or not it is moist near the surface. It is best to aerate the soil before the initial watering since it is often compacted to avoid shifting during transit. This also allows it to breathe and release moisture.

Rotate your plant periodically in order to encourage an even growth. Cleaning the leaves regularly will stimulate proper photosynthesis. As you wipe the foliage, inspect the leaves on either side to make sure there are no pests.
