« on: January 12, 2019, 05:51:25 PM »
New year so new topic
I planted some cyclamen seeds in a dark room in end of November and now there seem to be something in the pots

Those look like cyclamen seedlings. You need to get them growing in good light in a cool room, so that the stems don't get any longer.

Is frost free outside too cold?

It should be OK. I usually sow my cyclamen seeds indoors (I keep them in a dark cupboard) and as soon as I see the first sign of germination I take them out to the greenhouse, which is unheated, so I cover the seedlings with horticultural fleece on frosty nights. It doesn't get as cold on the SW coast of Scotland as it does in Sweden though!

Cyclamen coum in the garden.  They are all self sown.  The ones in gravel are east facing beside a low wall.  The ones in grass are south facing.

Cyclamen coum in the greenhouse.
'Quaker Pearl'  White flower, two different leaves.  Is the silver one correct?

Roma, the Grey-Wilson book says that Kath Dryden proposed that the white-flowered forms of the offspring from the original C. coum EKB 371 (EK Balls collection) should be called 'Quaker Pearl'. EKB 371 had reasonably large rounded leaves with a broad silvery hastate pattern and, in the centre, a characteristic deep green 'Christmas tree' pattern.

Whatever it is, the silver leaf is very nice!

The hastate pattern is a bit dull and not very silver so I will not pass on seed of either as 'Quaker Pearl'

Not sure about this one either.  The label says Cyclamen creticum which it definitely is not.  I'm not sure if it is coum or alpinum or possibly a hybrid.  I think the leaves have a look of alpinum about them but I am not sure about the flowers.  I only spotted the aphids when I put the pictures on the computer.

Flowers seem rather small (compared to my massive digit), but probably because still juveniles.

Can you detect a scent, Roma? I agree that the leaves look like alpinum, and I find the scent quite distinctive.
