    N. 'Lorraine' is singalana x boschiana. Very easy and insanely dark! I didn't notice that one for a while because it was hidden under some other plants.

    They are/were pink, white and mauve - all separate. Yeah, ouch!

    Mine is the red form. I should be doing a trade/giveaway deal once they're large enough.

Before I found what works in my conditions it was painfully slow and nearly died haha.
    Unfortunately, I have yet to get to that point ... killed two cephs thus far and have yet to gather my "courage" to try again.

    For me, the traditional peat mixes weren't working. I then decided to try 50/50 LF/perlite and they took off.

    I love that coloration, too. It just opened a new one, so we'll see what it does. The previous one developed that coloration while shaded, which I find really weird.

    And in other news, I have attenboroughii germination!!!! I have to give a big thanks to Luca for suggesting the use of bottom heat. That seems to have done the trick.
