    ceph pic

    these are still relatively young, but getting there. I'm trying to find the right balance of light to get the reds, yellows and oranges... I'm not a big fan of the dark burgandy.. but I'm not going to complain



    Cheers'

    Yes, that's a fine lookin clump of plant- all of them clumps of new growth around the base of it are real promising too

    I can't tell though, what do you have it potted up in?? Seems like a mix of sphag and peat, but you can't judge a medium by it's picture eh??

    Good Growing, tho, whatever it's growing in- hope you get the colours (Canadian Spelling there) the way you want them and can add another pic of the "masterpiece" when he's ready

    It makes for a very light and airy mix, I really, really like it and so does my cephs....
    wish I could take credit for it but I cant, it came from a major ceph guru in the UK

    Very nice looking colony! One suggestion: Wherever you see a winter leaf, I would do leaf pullings and get them propogated. Ya never know when something might go wrong. Always good to have a backup or 2 or... Also makes good tradebait!
