cyclamen somalense

Dear Ton,

The last information I received regarding somalense from the Cyclamen Society was that, while somalense has bloomed, it has not set seed.  Bearing in mind that the original collection of 3? tubers 17-18 years ago by a Danish plantsman has not increased, somalense is simply not available.

I do not know if attempts have been made at tissue culture.  Wye College in southern England has been working on tissue culture of cyclamen (there may be others), so you might contact them.

If you'd like, I can forward your message to Cyclamen-L to see if anyone can give more up-to-date information.
