Culture factsheet

Storing seed

Seed are stored in total darkness under controlled conditions at 10ºC (50ºF) in a relative humidity of 50%.

> Storing seed

We do not advise using seed as soon as it has been harvested, the result is puny plants.

A 3-month period of dormancy at 10ºC (50ºF), in a relative humidity of 50%, gives good results. Unused seed should also be stored in these conditions, if they are to be used the next year.


This advice sheet is based on the methods used at the SCEA at Montourey (Fréjus, France). These procedures may need some modification to adapt them to other climatic situations. Before starting to grow cyclamen there needs to be a review of precautions against pests and diseases.   We must point out that our advice and suggestions are offered for information purposes and therefore cannot include any guarantee of specific results; it is a good idea to carry out trials beforehand.
