Curiosities: In Japan, the cultivation of Azaleas as bonsai forms a separate discipline, having its own association of amateurs and professionals. The Azalea, unlike most plants worked as bonsai, has more vigour in the lower branches than in the apex, something that we must consider when pruning and pinching.
- Leaf type
Spring and Autumn.
Every 2 to 3 years, after flowering.
100% Kanuma, or mixed with a 20% of volcanic gravel.
When the shoot has grown up to 6 to 8 leaves, cut down to 2 leaves.
It is convenient to thin the flowers, so as not to weaken the plant. We will leave the flowers for a week, after which we will remove them. At the point of insertion of the flowers is where the buds will appear, usually in the number of five. From these shoots we will select the two that are best placed horizontally, eliminating the rest. These two shoots will be pinched to two leaves. We will also remove the old leaves.
