Coming Back

The cyclamen that I purchased in January has been losing its leaves for the last few months. Almost half of the leaves are now gone.

I had read that when  all the leaves die, you can put the plant in a cool dark place for several months. The cyclamen will eventually sprout new leaves and then you move it back to a sunny location.

When I watered the plant this week, I saw several new leaves and flowers forming. I will wait and see if the cyclamen manages to return to its former glory without being given a rest.
