Notes on Cyclamen 'Rainier Scarlet Red'

Cyclamen. I have been given one of your bright red Cyclamem house plants. It's a beautiful change rom my usual Pointsettia. However, how do I look after it and keep it flowering until Christmas. How is it watered? Where should it be kept and can I plant it outside afterwards, maybe when the weather is mild? Thankyou

You should keep your cyclamen in a cool room (ideally no warmer than 20C, but no colder than 4C), and water it when the compost feels dry to the touch. When watering, you should water it from below the foliage and avoid getting water onto the leaves or stems. It is also important that any excess water can drain away freely so the plant is never left sitting in water. As for planting it outside, I'm afraid it is unlikely to survive in the long term as they are not fully hardy.
