Q.Cyclamen is in distress!

Zone Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada | Raylan35 added on August 22, 2018 | Answered

I’m in the hospital and was given a cyclamen plant. It’s not doing very well. It’s foliage is drooping, some stems have rotted & blooms have fallen off. I have it in the window but the air conditioning vent is nearby. I read your info & I although I haven’t over watered, according to your directions, I have watered incorrectly. Is there anything that I can do to save my (once beautiful) plant?

The best thing to do at this point will be to wait until it is almost completely dry on top of the soil, down to about 2 inches. Taking too long to dry out is the most common cause of this. Make sure that you can keep the room cool, too.

If they will spot you some peroxide, then a little bit of that mixed in with your water (not exceeding 1/4 the amount of water) and water with this next time, this can combat any diseases setting in.

Most importantly, make sure that there is a way to get rid of any extra water from the watering.
