did you say he grows in 90+ degree weather?! I live in Houston but never considered putting my little guy outside...
That's a really beautiful plant. I was considering ordering a cephalotus online. Where did you get yours?

My ceph was at the top of my grow tank where the temps got up to 93 and it's fine. It's getting nice red color to it. The LFS is dried and not good looking. But I guess that's good seeing as they don't like to be too wet.
Here's a leaf sprout from last year:
Thank you for stopping by to have a look everyone. I got this fellow from czplants. I mist the moss twice daily and water comes out the bottom of the pot. I wonder if its too wet to keep doing this?
based on my experience, sooner or later that much will cause you problems... make sure you have good drainage and airflow
it is easy to love a ceph to death LOL
In addition to the drainage and air, it is good to mound up the pot, so it is highest in the middle, where the plant is.
this species doesnt seem to like it to wet or to dry......................my method is a large pot(my plant was only about 1.5 inches across when i put it in an 7 inch diameter/9 inch tall pot), mound the soil up, place Ceph in the center and keep it in a tray with 1/2 inch of water. soil-fairly airy mix, especially in the lower levels of the pot. it seems to be doing well.......ive kept this one alive far longer than the previous two i had, small pots gave me troubles as the soil was either to wet or to dry, constant just moist is easy to obtain in a larger pot
