    The pitchers that were on the plants when I got them were red, all the new growth since I've had them is green.

    how long have you had the ceph? did you have to repot when you recieved it? how close to the lights is it? and what is the light cycle?

    my ceph was a somewhat slow starter as well, as the pitchers mature ( especially from juvenile to mature ) they tend to pick up more color.

    pictures are also worth a 1000 words

    I've had them since September, they are dormant right now and will be repotted and placed in a greenhouse in the spring. Also how do you post pics on this site, nothing seems to work ?!?!?

    I think it's a matter of definition; Cephs slow down in certain conditions but don't go "dormant" the way a temperate Drosera does. I prefer to reserve strong words like dormancy for the more dramatic cases.

    Not enough info...

    What kind of reflectors do you use?
    (2/3rds of the bulb is pointed in the wrong direction)
    Photoperiod?
    Distance to bulbs?
    Age of bulbs?
    Kelvin rating of bulbs?
    CRI of bulbs?
    Wattage?
    Bulb type?

    and I'm from the other school of thought who thinks that there can be a significant difference between bulbs.... IMHO most will grow plants, but some can do a much better job then others

    but ymmv

    but regardless, I wouldn't use any type of UV bulb.... if you've got to do that to get color you have some major issues somewhere

    just my 2 cents,
    Av

    Cephs need dormancy in order to survive long term.

    its not that simple johnny, australia has a "wet" and "dry" season its not the same as like a summer and winter in the states...in most cases of course.

    dormancy for most North american species of Cp's means they dieback basically... that doesn't happen with ceph's ( with the exception of their rumored random diebacks not due to seasonal changes ) no matter what cephs should be maintaining active growth ya know?

    if you want to upload a photo which I'm finding more and more with this thread as necessary... you can use a photohoster like Photobucket.com and make an account then they give you an image link for each photo. post the link and we'll see the photo...

    Good luck
