Care of Cyclamen

Anonymous added on April 2, 2014 | Answered

I have several cyclamen plants, two of which I have kept for three or four years. In these older two the leaves are green but curling under. I water regularly but do not leave them standing in excess water. I have given them Baby Bio feed and they look healthy apart from this curling. There are one or two new leaves growing which are not curling (yet), but there are signs that the leaves on one of the younger cyclamen plants is also starting to curl. There is no sign of any insect infestation on the leaves. The plants are all kept on a north-facing kitchen window sill and have always thrived there until now. Please can you advise me what I need to do? Thank you.
