Cyclamen pods

This post reminded to to go and check on my Cyclamen seed pods, which I
completely forgot about harvesting from the dry sandbed in the greenhouse. I
knew it was most likely too late, and I was correct. Every single one was
gone, thanks, most likely due to ants.

Does anyone know if mice eat the seed or even the tubers? I also noticed
that a few three year old tubers were missing from their pots ( and one very
large ( 8 inch diameter) C. hederifolium which I purchsed from Ellen Hornig
7 years ago - now rotted, as a window pane had a leak, and I fear it rotted
as the greenhouse gets very hot during the dry summer underglass.

If I were to purchase new Cyclamen, and ideas for good sources?
