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?
