Cyclamen (Pink Flowers) 4"
Botanical Name: Cyclamen persicum
***Available for local pickup only!!***
Thanks to new hybrids, cyclamen plants are bigger, more vigorous and showier than ever before. Rising above heart-shaped, silver-and-green leaves are upright stems bearing beautiful backswept petals in shades of pink, purple, red or white (this specific plant has bright pink flowers).
Sudden wilting of leaves and flower stems is caused by dry soil. Don't worry -- they'll usually come right back after a thorough watering. Stems and flowers that don't respond can be pinched off. Keep this plant cool year round, preferably between 55 and 70 degrees. When blooms and leaves begin to yellow and die off in warmer months, simply prune back and keep in a cool space until the weather begins to cool again.
Light: Bright light. Some direct winter sun is okay.
Water: Keep soil lightly moist. It's best to water plant from below by placing pot in a saucer of tepid water for no more than 20 minutes.
