    These are pics of my little Ceph. I got him from the NACP auction. This is one that Steve (elgecko) put up for auction. I was a bit nervous about trying to grow a Ceph as I had read about how difficult some people found it to grow. So far this one hasn't been that difficult (knock on wood).


    This is a pic taken shortly after I got it on 6-10-05



    This was taken about 1:00am this morning when I should have been in bed sleeping [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]


    This was taken about 6:30 tonight. I think it's a little redder than in the first pic. I have been sticking it under a lamp on my desk at night when I'm on the computer for the last 4 or 5 days. It started out green like in the pic of the first day I got it. The bulb in the lamp is a 26W CF and the Ceph is 4" to 5" from the bulb. I estimate it's gets about 6+ hrs of light there. The rest of the time it's in my bay window getting bright indirect light.


    And this is my Hi-tech grow chamber. Yes, that's a piece of Saran wrap held on with rubber bands. I have one corner loose to provide ventilation.

    Hope you like little Ceph!

    Thanks guys. I am kinda proud of haveing gotten this far with out killing it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/Skin/Default/PostIcons/icon11.gif[/img] . It's still pretty small but has pitchered like crazy. It had 3 pitchers when I got it and now has 11 with another just beginning to form.

    I keep it moist. The pot it is in is the original container it was shipped in and is about 2" tall and 1" wide at the top. Not a lot of room for error if I let it dry too much.

    Great looking little Ceph BCK. It's amazing to see how much it has pitchered in just a few short months. Keep up the great work!

    Your ceph looks like it is seriously short of light. You'll sometimes see white areas on the pitchers which are shaded by another pitcher above, but your whole plant looks white-green.

    I also wouldn't bother with the plastic bag - it's a recipe for encouraging rot and botrytis.
