    Hey gang, just thought I'd brighten up the late winter with some promising pictures of a fairly hard to grow plant!

    CPFreak:

    Light: Full sun year round with minimal shading (winter sun now however)
    Soil: about a 50/40/10 mix of perlite/peat/sphagnum moss. very well drained, yet moisture retentive.
    Temp: high 40's at night (ultrahighland climate) 70-80's in the day.
    Humidity: High all the time
    Moisture level: top watered daily but allowed to drain completely

    Est: Thanks! I just noticed that the pitchers are also looking very promising too! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    The high 40's at night are not needed. It is ideal for a Cephalotus due to the fact they are a "highland" plant almost. They are tolerant of light frost and mine has been growing wonderfully in the conditions I provide.

    Thats a 7 degree drop in temperature. I think it should be fine. Cooler conditions really benefit the plant, but that sounds fine, fairly mild.
