How do you care for an indoor cyclamen?
Posted by Dobies Staff on 18 December 2013 12:34 PM
  • Cyclamen plants should be kept in a brightly lit place but not in direct sun.
  • A cool room is ideal where the temperature is maintained at 10-16ºC (50-60ºF).
  • The compost should be kept moist at all times but not over wet as this will result in the corm rotting.
  • The plant will benefit from an occasional watering with a liquid fertilizer.
  • Avoid water laying on the crown as this can encourage fungal diseases.
  • Cyclamen like a moist atmosphere and can be stood in a saucer of gravel where the water level is maintained below the base of the pot.
  • Faded flowers should be twisted and pulled away cleanly, without leaving part of the stem still attached to the corm.
