    Hello from Washington DC

    Hi,
    I am David Silverman. I am a new comer to the Terra Forum. I am actually a newcomer to growing CP's as well. I just established a Terrarium in my home from a fish tank that is 4' long, 2' high and 18" deep. I had a lot of help picking out the correct plants for this highland terrarium. I have been collecting rain water to keep them happy and so far it is looking very nice. I am really interested in other people who are growing their CP's in Terrariums because I do not have a lot of experience with amount of lighting etc. I am using a 4 bank florescent fixture with 4 bulbs as 14 hour a day being on. Does that sound correct? I am also interested in people growing Cephalotus. I love these guys and I don't want to kill them so I would be great full for any tips and help with them. Well that's enough of my intro. Heloo to all. David

    Welcome to TF! There are tons of people who grow plants in terrariums around here. I myself do not. I have a nice ghetto grow area above my closet that I use that sounds similar to your setup, minus the glass walls! I just got my first ceph recently, and am pleased with how it is doing so far (it is so tiny!). If you haven't already then you should search the terrarium forums and you will find some great terrarium pictures and tips for successful growing.
