    Hi all
    My ceph is turning yellow and there are only 5-6 pitchers or leaves that arent yellow and that are green. I grow them under 2 30Watt compact flourecent light bulbs for about 15 hours a day. They were just repotted today into a mix of perlite and peat. (2:1) I water them overhead and they are in a terrarium with about 80F and 70% humidity. Can I do something to help it?
    U cant really see that its yellow on the other side but it is. Thanks!!

    I'm not sure, but I'd think that the temp is too hot for it. I think cephs like it a bit on the cooler side, around 70-75 degrees.

    I'm looking around for any winter leaves that you could cuttings, as a back up. That's what I did when mine decided to die.

    It has only like 2 winter leaves. I hav a strange plant. Its just a big clump of pitchers. If I find a winter leaf and then cut it then should I plant it directly in the same pot or wat? Thanks!

    What I do is tug it so that the white part from the stem is taken with it. There are a variety of ways to handle it afterward. Some put the leaves in a Ziplock with moist media and place at an east window - and wait. Last year I had success with placing them in live, swampy LFS. Currently, mine are embedded in a D. paradoxa container, with live LFS, but not swampy. I would delicately take what ya got!
