Guff,

I have several seedlings of C. purpurascens [NOT alba] from the HPS seed ex.

I could give you 2 or 3 if you like.  They are still too small to ship well now.

Marc, thanks, but no need. I have hundreds- maybe thousands of purpurascens seedlings growing.

No purpurascens alba seedlings so far.

I am no expert on Cyclamen, but the few times that I have sown H.purpurascens (fresh in the autumn), they always germinated in summer, maybe July, so I wouldn't be worried yet. I have thought it is because they start to grow new leaves also in summer, and seedlings have the same cycle. I might be wrong though.. :)

When I collect fresh purpurascens seed and plant right away outside, usually see seedlings above ground by September, and more come October. If I plant out seed that I never got around to planting the following year, If planted by July or so, come Ocotber-November the seedlings will start to show. I have planted out 4-5 year old cyclamen seed and they do germinate.

Some progress, a bud already....think anyways. With the led light and fertilizers I'm using, would space them half dollar apart due to how fast they are growing.





Fianlly purpurascens alba seedlings starting to show. Two so far.

Whether I can keep the buds growing to see a flower...... 4 months from above ground to buds forming.

Was going to remove the bigger seedlings and plant them outside. They are covering up the smaller seedlings. Will give it a couple more weeks, just to see if I can see a flower.

Getting closer. Looks like it's going to be purple.

Did you run a control by any chance, no Bioag?

Jeff, no.  This was a last min project. Mostly did it to make the winter go faster.

This has been the fastest to flower for Hederifolium. I recall when I bought the purple seeds from Jan, it was around 9 months to a year to see flowers under lights. The original seedlings(Jans seed)were fertilized with Miracle Grow all purpose.

Well, not red or a dark purple I had hoped for.....

I need to make a bed and get the bigger seedlings planted outside. Might just plant them all out except for the  purpurascens alba seedlings. Need to make room for Daylilies.





Project completed, will post pictures of seedlings if I get some decent reds or dark purples.

Purpurascens seedlings are popping up, will be feeding them all Summer long with Bioag Ful-Power and Bat Guano. Will update in the Fall when the Coum pop up. Some Coum survived the winter ground upheaval.

Hederifolium seedlings, this is the darkest purple shade so far.







Purpurascens alba. This one is the biggest seedling. Might be two plants there.

Same purpurascens alba seedling as the above post. Three months old and I have buds forming..... Hopefully it's white, could have crossed with a pink or could have picked a pod from a pink when I was collecting by accident.

Either way, this will be the fastest yet for me growing purpurascens.

Took a closer look, and it's just one seedling.

Purpurascens Alba seedling bed. Been feeding them with the same mixture as the seedlings being grown under lights. Very happy with the amount of seedlings showing. Will take an update video in the Fall.

The bigger seedlings at the bottom of the bed were planted out last year. One seedling has flower buds. The others may as well, but can't see them yet.




Purpurascens Alba being so close to the pinks, some of my seedlings may be a cross. I want a mixed bed of different shades and with whites and pinks. Had planned on growing more seedlings this winter, but the deer ate all the seed pods, and the leaves during the winter. I'm surprised their flowering so well.
