Cyclamen

The perfect houseplant for any cool windowsill

Cyclamen are perhaps the most popular of all the winter flowering house plants. They have a long flowering period, easily blooming from September until March, come in a wide range of colours with beautifully contrasting leaves and a compact growing habit. They are also remarkably easy to look after.

Secrets of success

POSITION: Bright light away from direct sunlight.

TEMPERATURE: Place in a cool and airy situation, 14-16C, avoiding sudden temperature changes. If the temperature is too high the leaves yellow and the flowers wither. In warmer houses place close to a window as glass can help lower the plants temperature. A warm room means a short life for a cyclamen.

WATERING: Water sparingly. Let the compost dry a little before watering.  Do not saturate; over watering can also cause wilting. 

MAINTENANCE: Check weekly. Remove any yellowing leaves and to ensure lots of flowers, dead-head regularly.
