Q.Is My Cyclamen Dormant Or Dead?
I have been growing a cyclamen indoors for about 6 years. Until recently, it has grown beautifully. i had 6 new leaves sprout and grow, but not fully. they eventually wilted, and died. Is the plant dead or dormant? Is there anything I can do?

If you grew it for six years, that is amazing. It may have finally worn out.

Too much water can lead to root rot. Cyclamen also need a cool growing environment. Here's an article on how to care for cyclamen:
