Likewise, people ask, how often do you water a cyclamen plant?

While in bloom, keep the root ball moist and feed the plant every two weeks. Cyclamen should be kept moist by watering in a tray and allowing the roots to take up the water rather than watering from above the plant which can lead to rotting. Remove yellow leaves and spent flowers.

Also, what conditions do cyclamen like? Unlike florist's cyclamen that grows outdoors only in warm climates, hardy cyclamen tolerates cold climates and freezing winters. However, this cool climate plant doesn't survive where summers are hot and dry. Hardy cyclamen grows in nearly any type of loose, well-drained soil.

Although overwatering often kills the plant, it's sometimes possible to revive the cyclamen if you act quickly.

  1. Remove any decorative foil pot covering immediately so any excess water trapped in the soil can drain.
  2. Stop watering the cyclamen until the soil begins to dry out.

How long does a cyclamen plant live?

Cyclamen care One of the great things about indoor cyclamen is if (like me), you are a bit hit and miss with your house plant care, they are pretty easy and reliable, looking good for six to eight weeks in our cold house.
