Growing and Care

Ideal for pots and large containers, they prefer a cool, well lit, airy position. They do not enjoy rooms with central heating and will benefit from being put outside at night. Keep moist but never over wet and avoid wetting the foliage. Remove spent flowers by twisting the base of the stem, as this will encourage new growth. Feed with a low- nitrogen fertilizer every 2-3 weeks whilst in flower. Cyclamen are tolerant of diverse soil types and are not concerned too much with the pH, although they prefer a slightly alkaline soil.

Other important information:

CAUTION: Harmful if eaten: The Rhizome, (thickened roots) can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea if eaten.

Tips

BOOM cyclamen plants will perform best in a bright, airy position. Avoid constant full sun, especially if warm, as this will cause flowers to drop earlier. Cyclamen will also not perform as well if kept in a dark area.If kept indoors keep away from constant warm areas, and when possible put outside for a short period.
