Leave it be! If there is a hint of frost cover it, but generally very hardy I find!

A friend of ours had to take a carving knife to a corm of C. hederifolium to get it to fit into a 14 inch diameter plat pot.  Won him a lot of Firsts too1

If this is a hardy Cyclamen hederifolium leave it alone, it's how they grow. 7" isn't fully grown. Tough as old boots, I mowed the top off a big one, it only flowered round the edge for years after that but it's back on form now. Totally hardy

Big is always good (where bulbs or cake is concerned)
