My cyclamen are resting? #737552
Asked January 29, 2021, 12:37 PM EST
I’ve got cyclamen in two pots outside my front door. One cyclamen looks great and the other cyclamen are lying flat. Any ideas why? Will it come back? Do I just need to prune it?

Thank you for your question. Cyclamen die if they are in areas where temperatures are below 50 degrees at night. So it is freezing. I can't predict whether it will survive, but bring it indoors to see. Here is an Extension article on this species: https://lancaster.unl.edu/hort/factsheets/324Cycla.pdf Good luck!
I thought “hardy cyclamen” were hardier than that?
Perhaps you have a florist's cyclamen, rather than a hardy variety. https://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=25277
