    Great looking "Hummer's Giant" Elgecko. I actually just got one today. Do you keep it in the same tank as your other Ceph?

    Would you happen to know how big "Hummer's Giant" pitchers get?

    Hi Imwindplant and welcome (back?) to the forums! Cephalotus can be delicate. They can experience a sudden death. Elegecko topwaters and keeps his in a terrarium with great results. I have mine (which came from him) and sits open tray, at a window will. It is also doing well. We are doing things a bit opposite, but also successfully. I think that if one starts off with a healthy plant and acclimates it to certain conditions, unless they aren't very bad, they will do well.

    I agree with Jim on this one. I think that even though certain species of carnivorous plants require specific conditions to do well, a well acclimated specimen can do well in very different conditions (assuming the plant is healthy and gradually acclimated to said conditions).

    I've been keeping my Cephs in trays, letting the water dry out for a day between waterings, and so far my plants have been doing well.
