Cyclamens and tulips need a period of desiccation to optimise their 
flowering cycle. They should be dug up when the foliage dies back and 
stored in the dry until the fall. Cyclamens in a pot can be allowed to 
dry out without repotting. Start light watering again when the buds swell 
in the late summer.
