    Ceramic environments for carnivorous plants and others.

    I would like to show some invention I did for Cephalotus and other plants with similar requirements.
    The material is clay fired at 1200 C° still very porous. It sucks up water at least 4 in.

    Here at first my two Cephalotus setups, the first with my older plant which grew before in a smaller container of the same material. But it was too small for a prolonged growth.



    the other one in form of an tepui

    Really like the first one. Is the material porous?

    Wow, that first one is going to look just stunning in a few years once everything fills in and the sphagnum gets weedy!

    Very nice work on the pot!

    Those are very nice, indeed. Please update with more photos when the plants get bigger and thanks for posting these. I, too, really like the top one.

    Here are some other environments in progress, same material. Situation: low light, windowsill. The real beauty will come in the following season, outdoor.

    Love the look of these types of pots/containers. I had the chance to buy some (20 years ago) and only picked up 3 and have regretted it ever since. Too bad you are overseas The US just doesn't seem interested in custom porous clay, just the ceramic stuff.

    Its just a variation of ceramics The customs wont know the difference (me too). Maybe you post some of the ceramic pots you bought so long ago?

    I am sure there will be some people in USA which do stuff like this.
