I Have an Ancient Cyclamen

The summer of 1973 my sister and her family emigrated to Israel. Our 
parents visited them late that year. When they returned home they 
brought me a Cyclamen persicum tuber found exposed between a couple of 
boulders on a roadside.

I've been its caregiver for 47 years. Some years it is top-dressed, some 
years repotted, other years neither. It was  repotted cyclamen 
yesterday. Perhaps it should go in the Guinness book of records?

P.S. Let me say that 1973 was pre-CITES days and I had an import permit
