What to do if your indoor azalea has finished flowering ?
Has your indoor azalea finished flowering? Then remove its dead flowers as soon as possible. This will allow you to enjoy your houseplant for longer, especially if you follow the steps below.
How to remove dead flowers
Step 1: Remove the dead flowers
After the plant has flowered, remove its dead flowers. You can do this by hand: simply pick them off by carefully turning them.
Step 2: Choose the right spot
Once you’ve removed the dead flowers, it’s best to put your azalea in a cool and light-filled room. Light shade is also great, but avoid bright sun.
Step 3: Water regularly
Remember that the plant’s roots should not be standing in water for more than 30 minutes.
Step 4: Repot your azalea into a larger pot
Would you like to keep on enjoying your azalea next year? Has it outgrown its pot? Then repot your plant into a larger pot, adding turf or ericaceous compost. You’ll once again have a thriving azalea that will last.
Step 5: Back to the living room at room temperature?
s soon as its flower buds are sufficiently swollen, you can return your azalea to the living room.
