Pink and White Cyclamen Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grow in full sun to partial shade, in an average to moist, well-drained soil, containing a good proportion of leaf mulch, while they are in leaf. When they go dormant in the summer months, they need a dry site protected from excess moisture. Cyclamen are tuberous perennials that should be planted just below the soil's surface. May take a few years to establish.
