    my setup cannot support them, at least I don't think it can... I've always read that their flowers get very tall, as high as 30-60cm IIRC. I use fluorescent lamps so that wont work without some type of dedicated setup

    my only option would be to move them outside for the summer, and I tried that a few years ago with disastrous results... too hot, too dry, too many critters... so I'm a little gun shy of that

    I wouldn't take any chances either if they get that tall.. unless you have a section of your shelf that has higher lights. I don't think cephs appreciate it when we take chances. :P

    option #2-send them to me! I have room!


    Nice plant-mine is a barely visable seedling so I've got a little while to go.

    Cool Butch, nice pic (as usual) of a real healthy lookin plant!!
    Mine's not quite big enough yet to flower, but the guy I got it from has a windowsill Ceph that is flowering right now too- I find it fascinating how despite the distance between our locations, the plants "know" what time it is.

    Quick question- are the flowers self-fertile?? I am thinking my buddy will let it grow out, and if it would make seeds that would be an extra bonus, I'd figure (he has LOTS of others, so even if it sets the plant back a bit, he's not out a Genus)
