    How do you think my ceph is doing?

    Hi guys,

    Here is my ceph. I got it in april. A few of the leaves have yellowed and been cut off. A couple of pitchers have died in just this ~3 month life span as well. The interesting thing is the latest pitcher was forming since a month ago. As u can see...its growing and growing. Its now like a inch or more. But, I don't see any new growth in the center. :

    when I got it: (the big 1.5 inch pitcher is from a cutting that rooted).

    huh? I don't think this one is a giant. Its a typical ceph. I meant how long i.e., how many months would ceph pitchers last? A couple of mine were just 2 months old when they yellowed.

    I would take a few winter leaf cuttings and attempt to sprout them in a different pot, just in case.

    man! I a real scary cat with the ceph and even my other plants. I guess I just have some confidence with my VFT's. I can never make a cutting of this, unless it grows into liek a big heap of pitchers that overflows this 3 inch pot.
