Cyclamen Persicum (white) African VioletRegular price $15.95
A rich well draining potting soil is needed, which retains water but also drains well.
When the cyclamen persicum is in flower provide a decent amount of light, without direct sunlight.
Flowering and Dormancy Period
Once the flowers die off and the leaves turn yellow and deteriorate, the plant becomes dormant and wants to rest during the summer period, so if you like "you can have a go at getting the plant to bloom next year." Unlike other plants that grow at their best from spring – fall, the cyclamen does the opposite and grows from the end of Autumn - spring.
Remove all the dying foliage once much of it has deteriorated and place the plant tuber in a pot with the top section of the tuber sitting above the soil, within a cool environment, without bright light. Stop watering and feeding. You do not want the soil to become wet (wet will rot) and feeding stops because growth has stalled until next year. Once you see the first bit of growth, which should be from September - December, give them a thorough watering and begin normal care.
