    I think your ceph will slow down a bit in growth.
    I have a bunch a cephs over wintering in my basement now. I think it's gotten down to 45 at times. They are all alive, but dormant. No growth all winter. I ran out of space and had to put them down there. The plants that I have up stairs did great all winter at 65 to 75.

    This says they can take lower temps at night. If the temp goes down into the 40's at the lowest every night up back up when the lights are on will it go dorment? Maybe it would be good though if they go dorment. I found a site that says that when they come out they should have larger traps.

    It might also be a little warmer after the lights go off due to the greenhouse cover so it might not drop that low.

    I get the impression that Cephs naturally experience the full range of seasons, including temps and photoperiod. If there isn't enought variation it may not recognize a winter period and may not produce winter leaves.

    jimscott, what did you do to that poor plant?

    It looked so much better when I gave you the plant years ago, and that's all the better it looks now.


    Just messing with you

    When you coming down for a visit, it's been a long time?
