I have it in a 7" inch pot that has been outside since spring. Its the hardy
variety, but I know if I leave it outside in that size of a pot, the soil would
freeze and the temp goes down. I'm in NYC. I brought it inside, the leaves are
healthy looking. Can i continue to 'groom' this pot indoors and put it outside
again in the spring? Will it go dormant inside? Should i withold watering?
Some azaleas can be kept indoors like house plants. Others need a rest
period. Most florist azaleas, even hardy ones, can be kept like house
plants. Many field grown plants need to go dormant. This means reduced
temperature, reduced light and reduced moisture. I ideal place is an
attached garage or other unheated area with a small window.
