    You really have a magnificent Cephalotus there. I am green of envy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    May i ask you what is the growing medium you use with your Cephalotus?

    I have just bought one (still has not arrived) and want to provide the best medium to cultivate it. I see somthing like rocky. What is it?

    Cheers,

    I would love to tell you what I grow this particular Ceph in, but I don't know what the media is made up of. I bought this Ceph from Sarracenia Northwest back in October.

    From what I can gather, it's a mix of orchid bark, peat and perlite.

    Nice Cephalotus! The one I received from them in May had three pitchers at first, and now it has about 12 with more forming. I've been feeding the pitchers very tiny ants once a week.

    Here is the soil formula from their website: Soil
    Use a mix of 1 part peat moss, 2 parts perlite (or pumice), and 1 part orchid bark.

    I use a similar mix, except I add some LFS.
