Hey all

I have a small florist's cyclamen-she's pretty, she's pale pink and I love her! (even though after all my trying she is still going dormant on me [Smile] ) I was wondering if anyone knew how to best grow this plant from seed, not to mention the best way to collect the seeds and all that good stuff??
Ta for now [wayey]

I was told that cyclamen is a bulb. It doesn't like its crown to get wet. That's about all I know.

I have 2 gorgeous cyclamen plants, one pink and one white. The white one went dormant about a month ago and the pink one just about a week ago.

I was told when they go dormant to take off all of the leaves and flowers and just let it sit around like a pot of dirt until new growth happens. Apparently you can put the container outside in the shade, tipped on its side.

I'm just wondering, has anyone else ever done this?? I am curious to know how long I can expect it to be before I see new leaf growth?

Thanks
