Complete culture of azalea 'Indica' in peat including nutrition

, : Complete culture of azalea 'Indica' in peat including nutrition. Acta Horticulturae (82): 153-157

Pot plants of azalea, Ambrosiana, were grown in Azal medium (65% black peat, 25% white peat and 10% Hygromull) or a 60-40 mixture of pine-needle litter and peat. Plantosan 4D, Triabon or Osmocote at 750 g/m3 was added to each medium and the potted plants were liquid fed.

This is attributed to the less frequent watering needed, which results in a less favourable...
