Cyclamen are superb flowering plants. It's the cyclamen with its delicate nodding flowers blown-back petals that look like a troupe of airborne fairies dressed in their finery that adds an elegant touch to the deep window ledge in our kitchen. Direct exposure to the noonday sun may damage their delicate foliage. Cool temperatures are essential to extend your plant's life?about 15 to 18?C during the day. Cyclamen are sensitive to overwatering, making them difficult plants to maintain.
