    Very nice . I think you Ceph's pot may have too much water since it seems to only be peat.

    Actually, the soil is 1 part peat: 2 parts perlite, with only the top 1/4'' being peat.

    As for watering the Ceph, I just watered it this weekend. I only water it once a month, which allows the soil to dry out a little.

    Oh, ok, that seems fine then. Sorry for the misundertanding. But, how do you keep the peat so nicely patted like that :P?

    thats about how much i water mine, upper.

    nice plants. i suggest you give your outdoor plants WAY more light. everything except the ping looks very light deprived. purp pitchers should be on the ground. not in the air. up the lighting and they should bounce back nicely. and for your ceph. after you see growth coming out of it i suggest you take off the the humidity dome. humidity and cephs for me has only proven useful with ceph cuttings. regular plants rot with too much humidity.

    I took dry peat and broke it up (with no clods or anything) till it got to the consistency of sawdust. I then sprinkled it all over the top of the pot and allowed it to soak up the water from the soil below. This kept it nice and compact.

    Yep. The pot sits in a saucer that's about 2 inches deep. Since this is indoors, I only need to water it once a month. Besides, I read Cephalotus hates constant waterlogged conditions, so allowing the saucer to dry out helps dry out the soil too.
