Cyclamen

Zone Pinetop, AZ 85935 | merrycarri added on January 7, 2016 | Answered

My cyclamen is about 2 years old, blooms well every few months (shaded outdoors in summer, indoors in winter). This fall it grew a large, round shaped item that looked like a seed pot. It eventually laid on the dirt because of the weight of the 'pod'. Now the covering is drying and peeled away and the 'pod' resembles a dark brown round nut. Is this a plantable seed pod or what is it?

The seed pod likely contains viable seeds since the plant was outdoors and most likely was pollinated.

Cyclamen seeds can be sown unto flats of soilless mix.
It needs to be in a cool and dark location. Between 50 and 60 degrees F.
Keep the medium moist buy not soggy.
