Pots of 5.5 to 10cm diameter are most often used. Climatic conditions are exactly the same as for the larger-flowered cyclamen.
Growing mini cyclamen differs only a little from growing ordinary ones; the differences are essentially concerned with the choice of growing medium and levels of fertiliser given. These considerations are closely connected with the smaller size of pot used to grow the plants in.
We should point out that the term ‘mini cyclamen’ covers various cultivars with true miniature features, which have to be grown in small pots of a maximum diameter 5.5 to 10cm.
We shall not here be covering again the growing techniques for “normal” cyclamen which have been dealt with in the Growing Advice section. Here we are just concerned with the particular features of mini cyclamen.
