    Took 9 attempts with me before I hit the right conditions so you got one up on me

    its also a perfect example of why use aged or rinsed peat, i didnt bother rinsing the peat and now its got one heck of a carpet of moss in a very short period of time but since its growing so well i dont want to mess with it

    Nice looking Rattler, look like it is enjoying your area. I get that darn moss in quite a few of my pots but dont worry about it until I need to repot do to plant size.

    Nice ceph!

    It's also my third attempt with this plant, the other two ended in, well, sudden death of the plant from rot.

    The trick, for me, was putting them into deeper pots (6+" even for plantlets), and letting them sit in only 1/4" of water, letting it evaporate, then waiting 2-3d before refilling. Topdressing the medium with live LFS helped prevent crown rot and that pesky carpet moss.

    So far, seems to have worked and I've got about 6 in my collection, including hummer's giant and czech giant....which are too small to have showy pitchers, but in a few years with a little luck.....

    Another pic of whole pot:




    It was in a smallish pot too, repotted since this picture from the NECPS show. I always thought Ceph's were kinda easy, as long as you don't mess with the roots. Or drop a light fixture on it... DANGIT!!!


    Lookin good there Rattler!!

    yeah im really thinking for me atleast large, tall pots are the way to go, im thinking the last couple i killed were because the soil would swing from to wet to to dry, with the large pot i dont have to repot it and the soil tends to keep an even moisture level alot easier
