Q.Can I Plant Two Or More Azalea Rooted Cuttings In Same Large Pot While Repotting?

Zone 32336 zone 8b Lamont, FL | Anonymous added on November 10, 2020 | Answered

In the past when I repot single azalea rooted cuttings they looked much thinner and spindly than those in the nursery store. This year I put two or three small rooted cuttings in a one gallon pot and some in a 3 gallon pot. Am I making a mistake to do this? I want my plants to be more full and bushy.

Yes, I would do that. But start with the 1 gallon pot and as they outgrow the pot, move up a size. It is detrimental to pot a plant in too big of a pot as you end up overwatering it.

You can pinch off the tips to make the plant bushier.
