Looking after your Cyclamen
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
Cyclamen are an easy plant which flowers repeatedly in Autumn or Spring depending upon the variety. They will grow outdoors in sheltered shade, or indoors on a cool window sill or in a porch.
If indoors make sure your plant gets plenty of light, by putting it near a window. Strong direct sunlight is best avoided as are hot radiators.
Pick off dead flowers continually to encourage more buds, and pick off dead leaves to keep the basket looking fresh.
If your cyclamen plants start to droop, water immediately and pick off any dead leaves or buds to encourage a recovery. Occasionally mould can develop underneath the leaves, if this occurs, pick off any damaged leaves and flowers, let the plant dry out a little and then water more regularly, but sparingly. Mould is caused by damp humid conditions around the leaf stems or uneven watering and can often be improved in a better ventilated/drier room.

Cyclamen
Cyclamen Persicum
The name Cyclamen comes from the Greek kyklaminos, meaning circle. It may be a reference to the spiraling habit of the seed stem or the round corms. In the language of flowers, Cyclamen is a gracious way to say goodbye.
Cultivars come in a vast range of colours from white through purple, red and pink
The florist cyclamen is derived from Cyclamen persicum, a Mediterranean plant. In nature it goes dormant during the summer months, comes into growth as cooler, damper weather starts, flowers in autumn, winter or spring.
Cyclamen are very easy to care for indoors, the cooler the room, the longer the flowers will last. They need little water and if possible prefer a dry room to a humid bathroom. Ventilation is important to prevent fungal infections and any grey mould should be picked off early to maintain healthy plants and blooms.
Cyclamen were put to many medicinal uses during the first few centuries A.D. according to Pedacio (or Padanius) Dioscorides, a Greek military surgeon and naturalist of the first century.
Season: Sep to Mar
