Growing Cyclamen mirabile
« on: March 04, 2021, 09:33:44 PM »
I inherited a large tuber of Cyclamen mirabile from the late Betty Lowry and I've also grown a number from seed exchange seeds.  Mine never look as good as Betty's did, and neither does Betty's since I've had it.  I must be doing something wrong.  I grow them in pots in fairly porous soil in an unheated and well-ventilated greenhouse.  I keep them dry after the leaves die down.  I'm not sure about fertilizing.  Can someone give me a few hints?  Your help is much appreciated.  I feel bad that I'm failing Betty's plant!
