Care of Cyclamen

Anonymous added on January 5, 2011 | Answered

I have a Cyclamen plant that is still doing quite well. It is starting to get new blooms; however, they are very tall and droop. The leaves of the plant are also very long now and hang around the pot. Should I be cutting these back at some point? If I cut some of the taller leaves, can I start another plant?
