    Do you mean that the reason why you don't have this plant is beacuase you don't know if it can be grown outdoors? Cephs can be grown outdoors.

    I guess its really hard to get one of these because no one has Pmd me yet =(
    Or it could be that my growlist is too small?
    I think the latter

    There are other reasons for their death too. Mine died after repotting-they don't like having the roots messed with and I tried REALLY hard not to, but the dirt just fell away in a big clump and I had to get more physical that I had wanted to. RIP ceph. You haven't been growing yours for more than what, 2 months? You don't know what can happen during long-term care.

    ive had a couple of cephs
    i have them still
    my typical is probably dead from my mistake of a crappy repot job
    but hopefully it will come from the roots
    my hummers giant has 3 basals and is acting a bit strange but its still kicking.
    given the right conditions, these plants are incredibly easy to grow.
    and are hardier than people give them credit for.
    dont let people get you down by degrading you or saying you cant grow it because of your experiance with any particular plant. because without trying something new, you would never learn.

    scratch that
    baby ceph DID come back from the roots > YAY

    "Sudden death syndrome" is not because of root rot. If a plant dies of root rot, then that's not SDS, it's root rot. A plant will die for unknown causes. Of course there must a cause/reason, but we don't know it. They sometimes return from the roots/rhizome. That's why it's called sudden death syndrome, and this happens with a few other plants like D. adelae and P. primuliflora. You can have large pot with as many plants as you can fit in there, and only one will mysteriously die for no reason, with the rest not skipping a beat. That's why it's recommended that you keep multiple plants. I hope you do not take this the wrong way, but I do not believe four months of experience qualifies you to say the things you do. It's a very easy plant. For me. It is NOT an easy plant for the general population. This plant gives many, many people trouble, and a plant can take four months plus just to settle in, much less thrive and cause you to recommend this as an easy plant to someone with less than two weeks experience. We ALL wanted to grow the cool plants that we saw others growing at that stage, and then we got a reality check.

    I do not mean to belittle your time as a hobbyist, but four months is nothing, especially with this genus. I've been growing the plant mainly for trading material for approximately three years, and that's not much in the long run, either.

    If after much research you still want to try it, I say go for it. With TC, you can experiment all you want without guilt. Clones are disposable. I must recommend using Trichoderma. It does no harm as a worst case scenario and I believe it definitely helps all plants, Cephalotus in particular. If EVERYONE started using it, for all we know it wouldn't be as hard for the general population, but would become just another average growing plant.
