Cyclamen hederifolium

This little fella has finally put on some flowers.It is one of the hardiest cyclamens and should probably be kept it in the balcony all winter. It has a big tuber as you can see. Very special beauty, when talking about caudexes.

Hello There!

I am so curious about your Cyclamen! She is so beautiful! Do you have any good tips for growing this plant indoors?

Warm Regards,
Colleen

Hello, Coleen. I can't tell you much, I have had the little fella for a month now. I got it with flower buds, bud they just withered one after another. So I did some research and find out this plant likes it cool. It can stay outside all winter, as long as it has snow cover. So, I started opening the balcony door and leaving the plant there for an hour or more. It's 6-9 degrees Celsius outside. It felt much happier at once and produced the flowers and even some leaves. It goes dormant in may here in Europe.
I hope it was helpful.

Best regards!
