Cyclamen are undoubtedly one of the most popular indoor plants among Germans. They are real classics that enchant us even in gray winters and keep us in a good mood.
The winter here is gray, dreary and snowy, there are icy roads all over the country and all of this lowers our mood barometer according to the outside temperatures. So it would be clever to introduce a little more color into the interior. The delicate cyclamen are excellent for this. They have a long flowering period, from September to April, and delight the eye and soul with their delicate flowers. They come in numerous shapes and colors, but the most popular are red, pink, and white. But there are some in other pastel shades that are just as beautiful.
Many hobby gardeners think that caring for cyclamen is not for everyone. But you are completely wrong! Because these beautiful houseplants are not at all demanding. They like a bright and somewhat cool location because direct sunlight is not good for them. The room temperature should be between 12 and 15 degrees C and you will feel great there. It is better to choose a suitable place for your cyclamen in the bedroom or in the bright hallway, where it is not very warm. But do not put the flower pots on the windowsill, because it would be too hot for them there. In their heyday, the cyclamen need a lot of water, so they have to be watered constantly. Caution is called for here! Because the tubers of these delicate houseplants do not want to get water directly. So pour some standing water into the coaster, that is much better. Avoid any possible root rot, as it is devastating to cyclamen. It is also advisable to fertilize the winter beauties once every two weeks.
And if you still can’t think of something suitable to give your grandmother, mother or best friend for Christmas, here is our tip for you: Make your loved one a lot of joy and give them a beautifully decorated pot of cyclamen! It’s always a nice gesture that is highly valued. Because flowers are the best way to express our true feelings, don’t they?
