    Cyclamen Plant Problem

    by Stephanie Liptrot

    Question:


    My boyfriend bought me some cyclamen for valentines day and the white one is surviving but the red one is dying. I realized that I over feed it with too much water and miracle grow. What can I do to save it or do i need to buy another one.

    Unfortunately most house plants are killed by overwatering. A lot of people make this mistake with their indoor plants and particularly cyclamen are not very forgiving of this mistake. The bulb and roots start rotting and as a result the leaves and flowers start drooping. Most of the time it is too late to save the plant. The best thing is to discard the plant and start with a new healthy cyclamen plant.

    This time make sure to water the plant only from the bottom. Never pour water over the bulb at the top. Let the plant soak up as much water as it likes. Pour out any water that is in saucer after 15 minutes.
