    I gotta Sarracenia 'Hummer's Hammerhead'. Say that fast three times without smiling and maybe your wish will come true.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I like the inuendo...and the plant. I received some Giant Hummer's from the man (Hummer) himself many years ago. I had to grow them indoors. Cephalotus really doesn't like it down here.

    The National Anthem and the Deep in the Heart of Texas tunes have long been favorites of mine... or the shifting Motorcycle

    That said, I'd probly grow the Ceph's in a seperate tank with Cool White Tubes. They like it cool and long term heat stresses them out.

    Well here it is now. I can't tell if the growth point is fried and crispy or if that's healthy hairy nubbins. I think it's healthy but I'm not that experienced with 'em. I think I burnt it a little with the light but it looks OK.



    Taking out the three babies really trimmed it down huh? lol. They all croaked. Mold I guess. I'm really surprised that ping is growing in straight clay pebbles, too. It's not very moist. Notice the little "horned" leaf in the upper right, beside the proto pitcher.

    Are there two growth points, or does it just branch behind that pitcher?

    edit: What's your potting mix?

    That's just a weird angle I took the pic at. There are 4 or 5 points/plants there.

    It's... lets see if I can remember lol. I think it's 2 parts perlite, 1 part peat, and baked clay pebbles (Schultz' aquatic plant soil) on top. It does a great job of wicking away excess moisture from the crowns, which is a big help since my terrarium is at 90-95% humidity all the time.

    The plant is planted on a "mound" like in the first set of pics, then I just filled it in with the clay. It's in a tall clay pot in a little... like a shallow bowl of water.

    Good idea with the pellets. Thanks for that web link the other day, too.
