Cyclamen make a great alternative to cut flowers.
Cyclamen are a beautiful flowering plant well suited to indoor display. They are quite long-flowering -usually from autumn through winter and into spring.

Cyclamen are happy growing inside but need plenty of natural light. They dont like hot stuffy rooms so minimal exposure to central heating is best. They love cool nights and benefit from a night outside every few weeks. They will also thrive in a brightly lit area outside such as a patio or verandah.

Standing the cyclamen pot in water until the soil is soaked will ensure that the plant is not over watered. Pinch off dead flowers and leaves as soon as they appear to promote new growth.
