    N. 'Dormouse' is a neat little hybrid. The stem is bright red, and the shape of the uppers is awesome! I have no clue what's up with this Ceph, but it's a machine!

    I know pygmies will produce gemmae after a hot, dry summer dormancy, but mine went into overdrive when I switched from 800 lumen bulbs to 1400+ lumen bulbs.

    Is that the sphagnum you gave me? It looks similar.

    The Sphagnum I gave you is very different. It's from Newport News, VA. I was rather surprised to find it considering how developed the area is.

    Sweet plants Wireman! That one pygmy pot is very impressive.

    As far as Cephalotus is concerned, I find once they are happy they grow extremely fast in CP terms. In about 16 months I've had one go from a small plant in a 2" pot with no mature pitchers to completely filling a 5.5" pot. Before I found what works in my conditions it was painfully slow and nearly died haha.

    'Still love the lavicola. Big congrats on getting the D. cisitflora to germinate. I'm about ready to consider my own efforts a failure even after heat striation and Ga3 treatment.

    I plan on taking that pot to a conference or meeting, or whenever another plant show rolls around. I have to agree with the Ceph experience so far (Hendrix not involved). It took a while to get going, but after that first pitcher is sat there with puppy dog eyes screaming, "I love you!"

    N. lavicola just keeps getting better and better. It's starting to get more fans. The cistiflora seeds weren't as hard to germinate as I expected. The day I was going to sprinkle some ash on the pot was the day I saw the first sprout. Which flower color were your seeds?
