Not a question just thought I'd share.

This cyclamen was grown from seed and I don't remembering it ever flowering but it must be 4 yrs old now.

All the flowers fail to re-curve though other seeds grown from the same seed pod do. They are a range of colours too. Genetics in action :o)




Interesting - wish we had a 'like' button!

It is curious. The first flower is nearly a month old now and its the one at the back. All the flowers are the same.

Ah, soon to be known as "Seaburngirl's Lantern Strain", maybe!

haha, if only. One of my friends thinks its gross and should be binned!

Not gross, just shy.

You have a lot of patience to grow them from seed, then wait 4 yrs for the bloom, but I bet it's given you a sense of achievement. It looks a nice plant to me, leaves lovely & healthy.

there is a sentimental attachment as it was seed from one of my late mum's plants. I lost the original last year due to vine weevil getting into the house to lay its eggs. I was well over 20yrs old too.
