Azaleas are acid loving plants. Peat moss should be used in the soil mix and they don't like to dry out. They are seasonal bloomers and there are varieties that like sun but their flowers are larger. Most others are shade lovers. Good luck.

I must applaud your dueling victory with the red spiders, insects, and worms! Haha.
This might be obvious, but I just want to make sure your not one of those people who think bonsai is an indoor accessory. In other words, keep it outside. Some azaleas are late bloomers, while others may have bloomed already. I can't give you much advice otherwise, as you live on the other side of the planet as me. Also, I am not an expert.
Good luck, friend!!
