Cyclamens are great indoor plants as they originate from cool humid environments. They bring long-lasting colour to a well-lit room of filtered light. Depending on the species, they tend to flower in any month of the year. Even when they are not flowering the heart-shaped foliage is very attractive.
Harvest seeds after flowering period (depending on species).
Seeds should be sown fresh, when ripe. Sow to a depth of 0.5 cm and space them 25 to 30 cm apart.
Divide offsets in the dormant period (summer) and plant the tuber just below the soil surface with the top of the tuber exposed.

Cyclamens are very sensitive to temperature. Be sure to keep them in the ideal temperature range. They also tend to be easily affected by fungal diseases. Be sure to keep the soil moist, but not constantly as root and tuber rot might occur.
