One of my favourite plants! I've been growing them for 3 years now and my collection is constantly growing! Smile Azaleas (genus Rhododendron),a shrub species, are mostly grown as outdoor plants. Unfortunately, since I don't have a garden, I grow them indoors (and they don't object! Laughing ). Last year I've grown 24 new plants from stem cuttings and now I'm prepairing for the action of propagating Azaleas from seed!
Any Azalea fans? Mr. Green

It doesn't really need a lot of care but it does need constant attention since it needs to be watered regularly. Just a few days of dried soil could cause huge damage(even a root death). That is why they shouldn't be left at home for more than a week without care. But, when you do water them- one of the most important things to know is that- Rhododendrons don't like wet feet. Give them only as much water as the soil can absorb.

Sorry for your Azaleas, kuchlar! Crying or Very sad

Me to, me to!!!! (Is that some kind of disorder or just a noble habbit!? Rolling Eyes Laughing )

Congratulations, kuchlar, it's not easy to grow them from seed- the seeds are so delicate and olmost invisible that it's hard to beleive that they belng to this huge plant.
Now- throw us some pics! Wink

I have the evergreen azaleas and also started collecting wild and wild-type hybrid deciduous azaleas of the U.S. Here is a picture of Rhododendron canescens "Washington Parish", aka "Varnado", that grows wild in my area. The other picture is a pot grown specimen.
I have many others, as well, and my collection is growing. I have a large number of pictures of wild azaleas as well as many other native plants, that I am currently working on and will be putting them on a web site, hopefully soon!

Here is a wild, rather rare species, Rhododendron prunifolia, "Prune Leaved Azalea"... from S.W. Georgia, U.S.
