    I just repotted mine tonight into a 60/40 peat/perlite mix with a handful of LFS tossed in and ripped up for flavor. Upon taking it out of the pot, I didn't snap anything or bother the roots at all, didn't even spill a pitcher! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I didnt put in LFS but I was in a hurry to repot it becuz I didnt want those disgusting little bugs on my plant. It now has no leaves or pithcers so it cant photosynthesize but do u think it will still grow?

    I would have washed off all the old soil with some lightly warmed RO water to get all the bugs out of the soil unless you already did that. Then I would have repotted into a fresh soil mix. Uhm what do you mean no leaves or pitchers...thats really all a Cephalotus consists of right? What is it, just a little growing point nub?

    When I repotted my clump of baby Cephs a few months ago I disturbed the little roots quite a bit. I was pretty upset, thinking that my little guys would die. But here I am, a few months later, and they're still growing strong. They never even slowed down!

    Goes to show you that Cephs are much stronger than people give them credit for.

    Yes its just a root and a root stub ( the one I damaged) and this white greenish thing that I dont know if its a root or something. The long strong tough root is black which I think its supposed to be? The white thing is under soil rite now and Im not sure where its supposed to be. I just stuck the plant in there where the root pointed down. The whitish thing that hung off from the middle I just put in the soil facing downward. I dont know wat to do!!!

    Can you get a photograph? PS anything green or alive looking needs sunlight unless its the tip of an active root.

    No I mean a picture of the top of the plant, not the root.
