Yes, the pot had just one tuber.

So all the vegetation all around in that pot originates from the one centrally located growing point at the top of the tuber?

I think I found the answer to that.  If I am not mistaken, this pic on the SRGC forum shows multiple growing points scattered on the same tuber.

Thought you might like to see a few Cyclamen coum pictures from my last visit to Killerton House on the outskirts of Exeter here in Devon? The pictures were taken on 16 February.

Yes of course I am interested!

Where I am now it is 1 m snow and not a single flower to beheld.  It is unfortunately mild and foggy so it is not much skiing either.

That's a LOT of cyclamen!  There is no where to step without damaging them!

.Was there much variation?

Given the numbers Rick it would have been odd not to see a variation and there were shades of pink as well as magenta but I didn't see any albinos.

That mid-pink Cyclamen graecum put on a lot more flower later and a couple of other paler pink ones also joined in!
