Linda Asked,
How long should cyclamen babies stay in their original pot?

It would depend on the size of the original pot, of course, but if the soil 
is suitable, they can stay in a 4-inch pot for 2 or 3 years, or you can 
move them whenever they are dormant. Try to be sure to position the little 
tubers in the same orientation as they grew, since different species put 
out their roots from different parts of the tuber. The young tubers are not 
fragile when dormant. In the garden, they can grow on in quite a crowded 
group but don't begin flowering well until lifted and given more space.
