    I have two small Cephs. Both have brown leaves and pitchers, but still seem to be putting out new growth. How bad does this look to you experienced Ceph growers? I'm thinking lack of air circulation may be playing a part in this. What do ya think?

    They definitely need more air circulation as it appears that some kind of fungus is growing on the dead leaves,

    I have a Ceph that looks like that and it's been doing just fine for months and months. I think as long as your Ceph is putting out new leaves/pitchers, then all is well. However, more air circulation is always a good thing.

    Well, at least your leaves look nice and green [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Most of my leaves are dying [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] Turing yellow [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I think your ceph, has too many algaes around. How big and deep is your container?

    Try ordering sphagnum that will grow it will reduce youre algae down to almost nothing. Also, if algaes growing wouldnt that be to much water? just wondering i have no experience in ceph's

    Or do what I did when my ceph started going down hill - put them in live LFS and get the winter leaves rooted, just in case plan A fails.

    Algae is from too much minerals, like fertilizer or stuff in tap water. After a while, it'll go away, that is if you water down your plant's pot to wash away the minerals. But, otherwise, algae is harmless, and sometimes just pops up for no reason.
