Answer: cyclamen


Dear Franco,
cyclamens are plants that also live in the woods in the open air in Italy; in fact, however, in the nursery there are often delicate hybrid varieties, which do not bear frost and also the dry climate present in the apartment. They are therefore plants to be grown outdoors, but in a sheltered area, or at home, but in an unheated room or in the stairwell. Often they are grown outside, on the window sill, so that they can be covered with non-woven fabric when intense frost arrives. They are watered when the soil is dry, but they can withstand some short periods of drought, and withered flowers are periodically removed. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.
