Hey everyone! I'm Franco, a new subscriber here at DG. I have forever been a fan of cyclamen, yet always seem to kill them. Currently I have two beside me on my computer desk that are doing fairly well, but they always seem to wither away and die. I know they like the cooler temps and I've found they like to dry out almost completely before being watered again.

Though, from what I've read this is pretty common; it seems I always hear of an individual's cyclamen dying and never someone that has had success with the persicum variety. What is everyone's experience with them here?

I also currently have a singe tuber of hederofolium planted outside here in zone 6. It was just recently planted so I won't see any growth till fall.

I am successful with growing orchids, tacca (bat plants), and various other tropicals ... I just can't seem to get it right with cyclamen (Though I continue to buy them).
