Oron + John,
Thank you for answering both!

There is a chance that this plant receives too much water when I placed it outside in Sept./October. I also guess that caused some root disturbance - I'll try to keep it more dry now.
I didn't detect neither aphids nor cyclamen mites - but I believe the mites are difficult to spot ( even with a lens) because they are very small - so I sprayed the plants anyway.

With the mild but wet weather there are still a few Cyclamen hederifolium flowers to enjoy. These two close ups are from plants from Zakinthos.Botrytis is beginning to become a problem with dead flowers needing to be carefully removed

Dear Paul
I think this is a better place for my cyclamen collection.
First four are from this wild collection, the very first here started to flower at the 19.7. 2009 and finished middle October. The others started beginning of August.


The last two are from a friend in Austria. They are still in pots, white flowering inside pinkish. They started at the same time as the above plant. In the German forum garten-pur.de ( http://forum.garten-pur.de/index.php?board=24;action=display;threadid=7251;start=840 )are the first flowers documented. Its here usually time for C. purpurascens.

And there are a few others not yet flowering from a friend in Nuernberg.

Axel,

Yes,  A much better place.  I only put the link to mine in the other topic because we had been discussing the seedset on the plant.

Your last pic of the unflowered seedlings is a nice range.  Great to see that you've got one of those lovely dark leaves with the white middle, which have been commented on recently in this topic.  And from those, who knows what the offspring will end up producing.  One of the real joys of growing them from seed I think..... the chance of finding that elusive unusual leaf that really blows your proverbial socks off.  ;D
Cheers.

Beautiful display! The flower stems look longer and more elegant than my plants. Are they in a sheltered place?

A great show, Guff, I love the variations in your collection of leaves.  How mature are these plants?

Thanks everyone.

No protection if you mean a cover over them. I do have a fence and deer netting around them to keep the deer from trampling them, and the squirrels out.

They were started from seed second week in December 2005. Third summer-fall that they have flowered.

I've only just noticed Oron's article about the Cylamen fridge  :o on page 1 of this thread.  Brilliant idea. A matter of life and death indeed!....   ;D
