Plant details

This cyclamen produces dainty white blooms from late winter to early spring. The leaves, which have silver patterning over dark green, and the flowers appear at the same time from tubers underground. Plant the tubers 3cm to 5cm (1in to 2in) deep in humus-rich soil under the shade of trees. Mulch annually with leaf mould to help prevent the tubers from drying out in the summer and from winter cold.

Cyclamen another joy to behold another one of my favorites plant them in anything and they survive some have a delightful perfume I have planted the type that you grow in pots the ones that are not supposed to be hardy but they come back year on year ready to delight. I have planted hardy ones in the hope that they will multiply just like weeds lovely


what chemicals/feed do i use on indoor cyclamen to promote leaf growth and flower formation?
