Thanks Shelley 😊 - it’s so big it’s flopped a bit but I think it’s just about holding on without a stake! @ShelleySnyder

I hate staking! So hard to disguise it! Hopefully you won't have to! You are very welcome Richard! 💘😍

Thank you so much Karen 😊🙏🏼 - cyclamen are one of my passions, and one day I’d like to join the cyclamen society - there are some amazing leaf forms around. It’s a shame that they can only be propagated by seed as it takes much longer to get new ones that way @KOutdoors

Thanks Diane - hoping to get good growth on it this year, it’s already has more leaves this year than it ever has previously 😄 @hkyfvr

The leaves on this African Cyclamen (Cyclamen africanum) are huge compared to my others. This one is not frost hardy so I need to keep it well protected. Autumn flowering so no flowers for this current season, hopefully later this year after the dormant summer.

Although there was a flower (no photo unfortunately to show you) - see how there is a little pig tail forming at the bottom. Might get seed then
