I bought a clump of Cephalotus about three months ago from Black Jungle and so far the little guys are still alive. They definitely aren't big plants, which leads me to believe that they're pretty young. Here's my gripe: Since the day I received the plants the tops of the pitchers were closed. Every pitcher. Literally. Now I've read that Cephs will close up their pitchers when humidity is low, but why would the pitchers never have been open, even when I first got them? Also, it's not like the plants are dying. They're very green, with definite hints of red in the pitchers, and they also seem to be putting out new pitchers. They're just all closed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] Is this something that young Cephs do? Do I need to bump up my humidity (daytime=around 50%, nighttime=around 70%)?
I'm going to be buying a large Ceph from the friendly people here at **********.com very soon, so I want to make sure I get things just right for my new arrival.
