Question: 

What is the proper care of the cyclamen?

Answer: 

The cyclamen is the ideal flowering plant for a cool environment.  Place the plant in a brightly lit location.  Temperatures between 55 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit are ideal.  Keep the soil moist, but avoid getting water in the crown of the plant as it may promote rotting.  Lightly fertilize the plant every 2 weeks while in bloom.  If given good care, plants will bloom for several weeks.  The cyclamen is normally discarded after flowering.
