Q.Cyclamen problem

Zone 54739 | Anonymous added on July 30, 2020 | Answered

My mom’s cyclamen has long woody stems coming from the bulb and the leaves and blossoms come from the end of these 3-4″ stems. It’s quite unsightly. What can be done?

This sounds like how the plant grows naturally. You can prune out anything dead and make an attempt to divide the plant into multiple containers. It won't hurt to leave them, though. The stems should die back once you remove the tubers for winter or put the containers into dormancy.
