is this what you ment by mounding the soil?
wow lol. thats alot of soil lol. nice cephalotus buddy!
lol there is a thread a ways down that talks about growing them like this, well i think this is what they are describing. besides with this tall of a pot i added a mix of coco chips and LFS on the bottom so i can leave it standing in about 1 inch of water and not worry about the soil being waterlogged. through wick action with the LFS the soil stays moist
that looks like mine, except it's below the rim and it's on more of a half-baseball shape. and i tuck the sides down.
