Cyclamen tuber for propagation

taxonomist(7b VA)March 4, 2008

I have a strikingly colorful Cyclamen persica tuber(Florist's Cyclamen)that I would like to divide so that I can produce more plants. Is it possible to divide the tuber into several parts, dust with sulfur or some antifungal, then place in a bed of Perlite for new roots to form? Would like to hear from anyone who might have done this.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The general answer is Yes..... BUT many get greedy & make small divisions which dehydrate & do not produce plants.
