Let's position the plants where they can enjoy a good source of light,yet avoiding direct sunshine, which could cause antiaesthetic burnings on the foliage. We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day.The Cyclamen hederifolium can bear minimum temperatures a few degrees below zero; in general during the Spring it would be grown outdoors without any problems, but if the harsh temperatures should go down it is advised to cover it with non-woven fabric.
Feed Cyclamen hederifolium
During this period of the year it's good to fertilize our plants every 15-20 days; letís choose a specific fertilizer, for house plants, flowering or green ones, to add to the water used to irrigate. We should prefer fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour flowering and the development of new vegetation.
Care Cyclamen hederifolium
These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. These plants have trunks or roots which store nourishment, originating bulbs or tubers. The Cyclamen hederifolium is small in size and 10 cm in height; in the autumn it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
Irrigation Cyclamen hederifolium
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water . Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots.
Adversity Cyclamen hederifolium
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
Substrate Cyclamen hederifolium
Letís grow these apartment plants in a very well drained soil.
Cultivate Cyclamen hederifolium
When wanted we can grow these plants in a vase. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
