    I ordered a Ceph from Sarracenia Northwest a few days ago and I got notification that it shipped today, which puts it getting to my house either tomorrow or Monday. I can't wait!

    I bought a very small Ceph several months ago from Black Jungle and it's still very small but has been a fun plant to observe. The one I recently ordered is considered "medium" which should be a nice change from my existing small Ceph.

    I'll be sure to post pictures when it finally gets here.

    Here's the development of my ceph that I received from Sarracenia Northwest last May. It's a vigorous clone that turns bright red in good light:

    The plant when I received it May 1.



    The plant 3 months later

    Brian, what kind of light do you have it growing under?

    That's an amazing looking plant by the way!

    Stunning. Your Ceph looks... intimidating? I don't know if that's the right word. But anyway, the colors look really, really nice. I should try growing cephs someday.

    I have several Cephalotus that I grow in my basement. The temperatures are cool all year (daytime high 70-75F, with nights down to 60-65F). I use a CPU fan to constantly introduce fresh air in my chamber. The humidity is maintained at 70-75% using a humidifier hooked up to a greenhouse himidistat. For lights, I use 6 40 watt tubes, 50% being daylight and 50% being cool white. I can grow the cephs 12" from the lights and they still turn red. I water from the top (avoiding the crown/pitchers).

    The bright red color in the photos is only temporary. During early fall, my cephs turn such a dark purple, they almost look black.

    Next spring I'll transplant my cephs into larger pots. Hopefully nothing will go wrong.
