This unique variety of cyclamen has downward facing petals. Like other varieties of cyclamen, they have a long blooming time, typically through January. Cyclamen prefer a cooler temperature between 50-65 degrees with bright but not direct sunlight. They also prefer some humidity so try not to have them near a fireplace or heating vent. A very warm sunny location could force them into dormancy early. When watering try to water under the leaves and directly to the soil. It's best to let the soil dry out slightly, but not to the point of the plant wilting before watering. As with the Christmas Cactus, don't let them sit in water. Cyclamen are toxic to dogs and cats when ingested, particularly the root tubers.
