The devious calculus of plant acquisition

OH!!!  I do love them too, for fragrance and all their beauty.

I've grown them from seed, had them a few years and <<<guilt>>> killed them.

Keeping them cool in summer, shaded from hot sun, under a tree, lightly watered - worked for me in the past.  If you have the cool, non-freezing winter room, you have idea growing conditions.  They are quite well worth keeping, I've just killed more than my fair share!

Michael, I must have given the wrong impression: I'm very taken by these mass 
produced fragrant small Cyclamen persicum. In my opinion they are well worth the 
nurturing - I just have not figured out what to do when.
