Please explain these
1. Cleaner resort for a Western monarch. Ans Charwoman. Both char and charwoman are a cleaner. W is western but Oman is a country not a monarch.
2. Word in the next answer maybe. Ans term [Clue was 2d, 3d was Eccentric cleaner to do entrances to every room . Ans Character] . My googling has failed to find support for term=character.
3. Intrinsically American hero. Ans Perseus. Perse is dark greyish blue colour but can’t see it.
4. Cherchez la femme -there’s a trick to it. Ans Find the lady. Literal translation from the French and a card game (or often a con game). I don’t quite see how this clue is in a cryptic crossword rather than a straight crossword.
5. River spirit around in African country. Ans Nigeria. Niger is the river but cant see how ia or ai means spirit .
6. Flowers to cultivate without moving. Ans Stock still . It seems that still must mean cultivate but if you distil gin you don’t exactly cultivate it, do you?

anagram a W monarch
resort asin re-sort (anagram)
2 First letters of last 3 words is TER if that helps?
entrances (first letters?) to every room... maybe
1 anag W MONARCH
2 CHAR+ACT+E(very)+R(oom)
per se = 'intrinsically'
6 STOCKS = flowers + TILL
5 the river AIRE + GIN reversed
stocks till- does till mean cultivate as in till the soil??
sorry PM- I typed mine (stocks till) a few minute's ago but it just spooled for a few minutes and had to keep submitting
3 Per se (intrinsically) + US = Perseus (hero)
Sorry, I misunderstood the query at 2 - the word TERM comes in the previous answer + 'maybe' in the subsequent question -
'(charac)TER M(aybe)'

No problem, bobbinwales - it happens to me all the time.
