Cyclamen needs

El cyclamen is a plant that needs light to develop in good condition and is very sensitive to excess moisture so it is best if it grows in an environment with medium to dry humidity.

Moisture can lead to the appearance of fungi as it is a sensitive plant to them. That is why when watering, it is necessary to avoid that the water comes into contact with leaves and flowers. Irrigation is a central point for the cyclamen to grow healthy, the starting point is to avoid excess humidity. How to do it then?


Avoid spraying the plant or watering the center to avoid fungi or the plant will rot. It is best to place the water in a dish below the pot so that the plant absorbs the liquid as it needs it. Water twice a week when the plant is in growth period. In summer, it will only be necessary to conserve a minimum of humidity.

Flowering and care

Because it is an annual plant, after the flowering period it is best to clean the plant as the flowers die, that is, you must remove the withered flowers. In this way, you will lengthen the flowering period.

Once this period is over, it is best to remove and store the tuber in a dark and dry place to plant it again the following year or plant it in the shade in the garden.

    Hi! Leo I read you often. I understand that the annual plant should be called petunias for example (a plant that develops its entire cycle in one year and dies). Cyclamen being bulbous are considered herbaceous. They do not die but rise again, and in any case on the peninsula they "sleep" for only a few weeks.
