    Lookin' good, as usual. Glad the cephs have a good home The dew is nice

    Are you keeping the cephs in those white pots still? I realized they would do better in deeper pots in the long term, but didn't have the room and figured they would be fine in those until they got a little bigger. I'm sure you can put off repotting them for several months to a year at least.

    the bog looks good, i told you it was a piece of cake to throw together. mulch it with some pine needles and winter should be no problem. i didnt get mine mulched before i had to leave so i'm hoping for a really snowy winter.
    So many plants...so little time

    Congrats on the first bog. I like the layout of the second one.

    'Good to see that the big D. graomogolensis is coming back so well. I like it when they're in that green going to red stage.

    Already in a nice tall pot with my special ceph media mix.
    Way ahead of you buddy.

    I appreciate the PM full of notes brotha. Was just the motivation I needed to make this happen. I've got the bog fever!

    Just curious now that you've mentioned it: What's your special ceph mix? I've been pretty liberal with what I'll use, from a 60:40 sand to peat mix, to adding some perlite to that mix, or 60:40 perlite to LFS ratio (numbers rough, I rarely actually measure) and they all seem to work fine.

    seeing that LFS in there made me nervous. But trying to remove it made me even more nervous.
    My mix is 3:2:2:2:1
    orchid bark, charcoal, peat, silica, and perlite.
    Super chunky, fast draining, and easy to dry.

    When I bought the original ceph it was very healthy and had been growing in a LFS and perlite mix. I think we give these plants too little credit for their addaptability to different soils and conditions sometimes. I think most importantly they shouldn't be waterlogged, and should have fast draining soil, as you said. Not using the tray method for my cephs helps to regulate the soil moisture, of course. But I guess it always comes down to different approaches working for different people.

    BTW, my regia roots are starting to pruduce a few buds, and should have some leaves up really soon I put them on top of the live sphagnum as you suggested.

    What's wrong with some LFS in the mix for cephs, in your view?
