I cannot get over how much this #PersianCyclamen has grown! I see a new pot in her future 😍 #HappyPlants #PlantAddict #NewGrowth
2ft to light, indirect
8” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 week ago
@Corinne They are fast growers in the right conditions. Obviously yours is loving life exactly where it sits. She is gorgeous. I had mine in my office 4’ under a skylight. She received indirect sunlight all afternoon. She was doing good & growing. I even got her to bloom once in my care. The flower color actually changed to a more fuscia color. Unfortunately, I did not repot it in time. The roots grew so much faster than I anticipated. I believe she had root rot. I probably could have worked to save it but haven’t had time to do so & I let her go too long. I would like to try again with a new Persian Cyclamen. It is so rewarding when they bloom. Good luck with yours. She’s a beauty.
@Rockrlee she does love her spot! That’s one of the first things my mom told me. If she’s happy where she is never move her πŸ˜‚ I’ve got her on a cabinet that’s next to a bay window, so she’s getting great indirect light. And thanks to this app I never forget to water her. This one sprouts 2 colors. Most are the white and fuchsia, but every now and then I see solid fuchsia. You should absolutely try again! They’re usually out in copious amounts right now because of Valentine’s Day. Hahaha. I actually started this hobby because my life was so crazy with work, I was neglecting my β€œme time”. These plants take my mind away to somewhere peaceful (and now I’ve got a jungle in my dining room). I hope you get another and have bountiful success!
@Rockrlee I just checked your page and see you’re an alocasia addict like I am! I have 2 giant taro, 1 giant taro pup, and Alocasia pink dragon. I just ordered a 4 pack and I’m hoping for a black velvet. Yours is stunning!!!
@Corinne Alocasias are a passion of mine. I go through phases (begonias, Philos & Hoyas etc..) but always return to Alos. They just seem to like me. They are needy with their care & feeding schedule. But I just can’t get enough of them. I just scored a variegated Frydek that I’m excited to receive.
@Corinne my me time has turned into an elusive full time regimen with the lot I have. I managed to obtain the jungles of Borneo in my home. πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ€­πŸ˜‚ I just ordered 4 more plants cause I can’t help myself. I am definitely #PlantAddict
@Rockrlee πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ you sound like me!! I ordered a whole slew of stuff over the last 3-4 days. I’m scared to see how much trouble I got myself into. 🫣
I’m trying to bring mine back to life ugh. I’m not sure if I can save it it doesn’t have any leaves on it but I keep seeing budding flowers that don’t bloom. I’m not sure what is wrong with.
@PrimoLilliput maybe I can help. what are the growing conditions? How much light, how wet is the soil, does it have drainage, how often do you water?
@Corinne it has drainage. I just got it and it was so beautiful and then I think it got cold because it wilted everything off of it and I’m trying to bring it back. It’s in a tiny pot because it’s a baby . I’m thinking it’s dormant right now.. hoping . I let the soil dry then water it . It dries pretty quick since it’s in a small pot.
@PrimoLilliput oh and it’s under a grow light
I might have wasted it 😩
@PrimoLilliput how close was the grow light and how many hours did you use it daily? They really love indirect light and moderate room temp. Like 68-73. Wilting off can be normal if the growing conditions are proper.
Oh I may have burned it then because it’s about a foot away from it because I thought it needed it πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I’ll move it from it to see if I can save it because it still forms flowers buds
@PrimoLilliput good plan. It only needs a few hours from a distance. Sounds like you were watering properly. Pinch off the dried/wilted stems so the water/nutrients can go to new growth! πŸ€žπŸ€
@Corinne thank you much appreciate your help πŸ™Œ
Yes that is so pretty, I'm working on mine just loss a couple blooms so sad 😞
