How to Keep Cyclamens Happy Through the Holidays
I did not remove a spent blossom and a seedhead formed. I planted the seeds and got several plants. All grew to maturity. I have done this several times with many diferent cyclamen. I make gifts of them to friends and neighbors. Have you noticed that some cyclamen have a sweet perfume like scent(mostly white) while others have no scent?
I found a very beautiful cyclamen plant...it was marked down to almost nothing--why-I really don't know! But-it is so very beautiful! But-I haven't ever had much luck with cyclamen! Any special "hints" that I might use? Thank you!
I have a offshot of am aloe Vera that I repotted in catus soil. The leaves are getting black spots on them. Please help.
Hi Rita, We’d suggest you go to an aloe vera page and an expert can help you there. Here’s one : https://www.almanac.com/blog/natural-health-home-tips/aloe-vera-self-regenerating-first-aid-kit
I ordered some Hardy Cyclamen bulbs last Fall and they started sprouting before I could get them planted outside. (We had a very early, very harsh winter.) I planted them in a pot inside and they have survived, although they are very small, and are blooming. I would like to plant them outside. Should I just leave them, watering occasionally as I do now, and wait to plant them in the Fall?
You can plant them in a bigger container if you like and put the pot outside. Or, you can plant them in the ground and water when soil is dry.
My cyclamen finished flowering about a month ago..They are near the north window, about 15" away. Now, a few leaves are still standing out and green. What do I do now. I live in an apartment and have a terrace. it could go down to 20 or less out there. Since the cycle is the opposite of what you described, what should I do to get them to bloom next season. They were in bloom since September. Thanks
Let the plant go dormant. Start watering regularly in early spring and move the plant closer to a sunny window. When tempetures allow it move the plant outside.
