Bright light but no sun and keep the soil damp. It could go dormant for a short time next summer if it gets too warm.

Depends on which species of cyclamen. Some like C. purpurascens, C. hederifolium, C. coum, and C. cilicium are hardy well below freezing and could easily grow outside all year in (dry) shade.

Others like C. persicum are tender and need to be kept frost free in winter.

Most likely, unless a special order, its Cyclamen persicum.
