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?

It sounds like the plant is getting ready to go into dormancy. It is best to let it do so. Unfortunatly, you cannot start new plants from trimmed leaves. At the bottom of this article, there are instructions on how to care for the plant in dormancy: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/cyclamen/cyclamen-care.htm
