Q.Cyclamen Reblooming Before Going Dormant

Zone Rhode Island | annamaudelee added on May 13, 2024 | Answered

My cyclamen stopped blooming at least a month ago. I have been watering it with a suitable fertilizer to prepare it to bloom again after I start to withhold water, and the leaves die, and it goes dormant. But now it is producing a new crop of buds. What should I do? I had one which did the same thing last year, and had over 50 blooms, but had very few this winter, and then got diseased. I would like to avoid a repeat of that situation.

If there was a disease present, then this could definitely be related. You mentioned noticing a disease in another plant, so it is possible that it has been transmitted through contact or soil.

I really can't say much from here, other than knowing that it is an extreme stress of some kind. But your local extension can help test for disease with samples.
