I have a potted cyclamen that was in full bloom when we got it for my daughters funeral. I would like to save it. Right now it has sparse leaves and they are not as full as they once were. I need to know more about this plant.

Cyclamen typically go dormant in the summer. It may be difficult to provide the right conditions to get it to grow and rebloom again (bright light and cool temperatures). See http://lancaster.unl.edu/hort/factsheets/324cycla.pdf or
