Bulbs (including other geophytes with corms, tubers, rhizomes etc) / Compost for bulbs
by John on February 04, 2012, 12:04:17 PM
......  that I must do something with my neglected Cyclamen. Some e.g. C. graecum and C. rohlfsianum stay in  ............  some of those in the repandum group and C. purpurascens start to sulk when the compost deteriorates and  ............  also prompted when I received my copy of "Common Cyclamen (Cyclamen purpurascens Mill.) and its diversity  ............  Slovenia" by Joze Bavcon from the Cyclamen Society, he was successfully growing this species  ............  mould compost. The picture is of a fairly old C. purpurascens with my hand for scale, it is about 17 cm across.  ......

I am looking for a photo of Cyclamen purpurascens and by searching in the Forum I came across this reference.
However, I can't find the photo

Hilary, John's  photos are of the corm, not the flower. I'm afraid no one else has posted this flower though Oron or Alisdair might help?

Sorry, Hilary and Fleur, but I don't have (or at least can't find) a purpurascens photo!
