     Hello Nones  ;),
     It's been too long. 
     I'm glad you like it.  It was a get-well present for my wife when she crashed her bicycle and broke her ankle, back in July of '06.  It blooms every six months, and the corm is almost as wide as the pot it's in.

     Hello Folks,
     Another year has gone by, and this cyclamen keeps getting bigger and bigger.  It's still crammed in a pot that barely holds it, which it seems to suit it very well.  I hope you all enjoy it.

Helloo Mike - and it's STILL beautiful!  The best cyclamen that I've had was in a tiny pot - it bloomed like crazy but I overwatered it and it's no longer with us.....

     Hello Good People,
     This plant should be called SuperCyclamen.  It thrives in hot dry weather, in a very tight pot, and loves to be watered heavily.  In fact, it droops if it does not get it's almost-daily watering.  The corm is about 12cm across, with growing points all around the edge and over the top.  This could grow into a fine specimen as the years go on.  I enjoy sharing it with you.

     Mike

     Hi Rena,
     It is indoors, in an area of bright shade.  In the past I have had it in direct summer sunlight through glass that filters out heat rays, called "low-e" glass in the States.  Last summer it was in my greenhouse, under 80% shade in high heat.  It doesn't seem to care what sort of light it gets, as long as it gets some.
     It goes semi-dormant in midsummer, and loses most of it's leaves, at which time I repot it into new mix and a slightly bigger pot.  I keep the top of the corm well above the soil.  It revs right up, and starts growing again.
