    Hello, I got this Satsuki Azalea yesterday, and I don’t have any experience. I live in Norman, Oklahoma and the temperature now is cold. I read that I have to have it outside and Heel-in it.

    When is the best time to repot Satsukis?

    I have two Satsuki, unknown variety, just the plain pink ones from Brussel's, that I got a few years ago. One I left alone, one I'm trying to make into an exposed root bonsai. Both have grown a lot and are badly in need of a pretty drastic cutback and repot. They are just finishing up a heavy...

I think these are imported ones from Eldorado when Telaparion bought them out when they closed. they have been untouched in a few years. I...

    First satsuki, advice wanted

    I bought this 7 y.o. satsuki a week ago, its in pure kanuma right now I believe. I would like it to grow larger, is it advisable to put the rootball into a bigger pot and fill in the difference with vermiculite/bark/perlite mix right now? If you look at the close-up, you can see many dead aerial...

This Satsuki Azalea (pictures attached) caught our eye today but we are a little worried that the leaves are light green/yellow-ish (vs the mostly dark green I've typically seen online). We don't mind the aesthetic...

    Satsuki Azalea ‘Kinsai’

    I got this azalea in May 2017, just at the end of blooming. Since Kinsai is a hybrid cultivar, it’s risky to buy them out of bloom. Their flowers can permanently revert from the desired bright-red, spider-like petals to the paler pink fuller petals. Once the fuller petals take over, that’s it...

    Worst scenario: I don't have access to rain water easily, tap water here is hard and alkaline, and I am trying to keep the azaleas happy.
