Hello, my question is about Azaleas. I recently bought one for a houseplant but the blossoms died quickly, I've removed them. Since I brought it home the leaves have been droopy. I've watered it until it came out the bottom and gave it a little fertilizer too. It been a day and still looks the same. As far as light, it sits in an East window with morning sun. Is it not getting enough light? Other than the droopy leaves it seems to be ok, no loss or color of leaves but a little new growth. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thank you! Cathy

There are several things to address here. First, moving them into a new environment will shock them. This will usually recover on its own. It is best to leave them alone, aside from watering when the soil is almost completely dry, until they recover. I would move it into a new, larger pot soon. Give it as much light as possible indoors. Any south facing window will work, as windows filter a great deal of light. So they will not be burning while exposed through a window.
