Environment   

  • Keep cyclamen in a cool location. 55-60 F is the ideal.
  • Indoors: Avoid vents, windows, extreme changes in temperature.
  • Outdoors: Filtered sun to shady location.
  • Spacing depends on variety, but it is good to plant cyclamen about 8-10' apart.
  • Make sure to plant corm (bulbous root part)about 1/16' above the soil to avoid rot.

Watering

  • Keep them moist - not soggy - and don't allow the soil to dry out completely. This will throw the plant into distress.
  • Don't water from the top, if possible. Always water at the base - this will help the root system develop, keep water off the leaves avoiding spots, and deter diseases.

Feeding

  • Balanced water soluble (Miracle-Gro) or granular (Osmacote) is recommended for continual flowering. Follow directions on product.

In General

  • Pull spent blooms at the base level (near the bulbous root, or corm) instead of cutting. Same thing for any dead leaves.
  • Keep the area around the cyclamen (especially under the leaves) clean of debris. This will help the plant to avoid diseases.
