    Before


    After



    This is my first time doing something this radical to my ceph.
    There is not much of a root system on many CP's and the ceph is no exception. Many divisions did not have any roots, just a rhizome. I have had sarr and VFT rhizomes which did not have any roots, take root. I hope cephs are the same way.

    You are so brave!!! Steve, sometimes I wonder why only you can grow N. hamata and cephalotus so excellently...your conditions must be ideal for both of them!

    I see lots of perlite. What's your mix for your cephs?

    That's amazing how many individual plants came from the clump! So where are you going to grow them all?

    Cindy,
    I know I've read where cephs can be very picky about root disturbance. I figure at least one of the plants will end up living out of all of them if it was a bad thing to do.
    I guess I'm very lucky with my plants.
    My latest attempt I'm trying nep wise is a N. rajah right beside the N. hamata.
    My soil mix for most all my CP's is equal parts perlite, peat moss, and LFS.

    LLeopardGGecko,
    I kept 4 or 5 growing points on my plant. Then as you can see in the picture I have 8 more individual plants.
    I do not have room for them all. I may keep 1 or 2 to do some experimenting on. Such as growing outside in full sun, letting one go into dormancy, and see how they react to it. The others will find new homes.
