Q.Cyclamen With Weak Stems

Anonymous added on February 26, 2011 | Answered

We have had a cyclamen plant for a two or three years and it has flowered each year. Initially, the flower stems stayed straight up, but this time the stems do not seem to be able to support the flower and they sag down to the table.

Do you have any advice as to how to correct this situation?

It sounds like it may not be getting enough light. This is the most common reason for weak stems. The other issue may be too much water. Water only when the top 1 inch of the soil is dry.
