should cyclamen corms be dried out (ie not watered) after flowering?



Watering should be reduced significantly after the leaves die back but they should never be completely dried out. Once dry, cyclamen corms take a long time to recover, if ever.

My miniature indoor one just keeps going summer and winter and is rarely without flowers for long.. Outdoor ones do their own thing. The bigger indoor ones enjoy a rest but not a drought, as Bulbaholic says!
