Azalea Buds Falling Off Plant
The buds of my azalea plants keep falling off.
Flower buds of azalea, Christmas Cacti, gardenia and other plants drop off when subjected to low humidity, blasts of hot or cold air and dry soils. Always wrap plants when transporting them in the winter. Keep them in a cool location away from drafts of cold and hot air. Increase humidity around the plants by placing a tray filled with pebbles and water beneath the plant. The pot will sit on the pebbles NOT in the water. As the water evaporates it increases the humidity around the plant where it is needed. This also prevents overwatering caused by plants sitting in a water-filled saucer. Water thoroughly and frequently enough to keep soil moist but not wet.
