Dave, the details on the main Rhododendron page (and consequently on every other page in that genus) say the plant is suitable for growing in a 1-gallon container. I think that's misleading because even azaleas would need a larger container than that. Can you please delete that particular detail from all of the rhododendrons?

Yes, there are so many plants in that genus that any container instructions can't apply to them all. I've removed all of the container entries for that plant.

Dave, the container details have been removed from the main page, but they're still present in the details that were added automatically to most of the Rhododendron entries.

Yes, this is the downside of having details in the parent plant and later removing them - it does not remove them from the children plants.

I'll have to write a separate script to remove the 1 gallon reference to all the rhododendrons.
