Which direction is up when planting the hardy cyclamen bulb? To me the bulb looks like a mushroom button. Does the round part go up or does it go down?

With some plants, especially dormant bareroot plants and bulbs, it's hard to tell which way is up. The rounded side goes down, with a flat area on top being where the plant will sprout from. Roots will grow from the rounded side.
