After your cyclamen has finished flowering, continue to water the plant regularly and lightly fertilise until the foliage begins to die off. Then place the pot in a shady part of the garden and keep it dry during the dormant period (summer). In autumn, the cyclamen will begin to re-sprout, if it hasn't, water the pot. In no time the plant will produce leaves and initiate flowers.
