(Cyclamen persicum hybrids)
● Buy locally grown. Glendoick’s are grown in Scotland. Supermarket imported dont last long.
● They need bright, but filtered light, away from strong sun and draughts.
● Minimum temperature of 13-15°C (55-59°F).
● Water sparingly & from below using a saucer.
● Avoid draughts and be careful when transporting poinsettias. In cold weather protect with wrapper or bag.
● Usually grown as an annual, thrown out when it is over as hard to get red bracts back.
Most cacti and succulents like a sunny or bright position window all year round.
During the winter it is best to have cool night temperatures of 8-10°C (46-50°F) as a minimum, for a period of rest. They can take central heating but not keep in very hot conditions 24 hours a day.
The compost must be open and free draining: waterlogging and overwatering will kill them trough rotting. Use Cacti compost or John Innes No 2 with 30 percent extra grit or fine gravel. Do not overpot: they like to be a bit rootbound. Re-pot pot-bound plants in spring, into a pot only slightly larger in diameter. Cacti are best watered with rainwater.
Watering in Summer
Watering in Autumn and winter
● Indoor orchids are mainly epiphytic (growing on trees) or lithophytic (growing on rocks).
● Repot every 2-3 years. Use bark-based orchid compost, using as container one or two sizes larger.
● Phalaenopsis like indoor room conditions all year round, minimum temperature requirement of 18°C (65°F).
● Bright but filtered light; avoid direct sunshine.
● Orchids like high air humidity (mist foliage), but their roots will rot easily in wet compost. Water them about once a week, ideally using tepid rainwater. Water from above and tip out any water that collects in the saucer under the pot.
