The Q&A Archives: over watered a cyclamen

Question: I have over watered my cyclamen how can i get it grow again? It has a few new leaves starting do I cut the dead ones off? Please help me!!

Answer: If it has new leaves starting, it's probably okay. You can pinch off dead leaves. In winter, when plants go dormant they need less frequent watering than when they are actively growing. You might want to get a soil moisture monitor to help you determine when to water. Or, stick your finger into the soil. Let the top inch dry out before applying more water. Good luck!
