    This would be a great time to use the search function since I'm sure there is at least one post about general ceph care.

    These are probably things you should think about prior to getting a plant; but anyways, I have mine in a tray that I let dry for a few days between waterings. Give it lots of light, and don't move it around a lot.

    I like tall, wide terra cotta pots. something they can stay in for a long time so you don't have to repot them for a while.

    I think my mix is 2/1 perlite/peat and I don't put it in a tray of water except for when I leave town. I grow it like a nepenthes and top water.

    You should read how to cultivate a plant before you get it...

    Yes, try the search feature. Cephalotus can be quite easy for some and quite hard for others... it's odd.

    Ooh! Can I say it too? Use the search feature. HAHA!

    Seriously, you'll find many different methods. I don't use a tray. I have mine in a windowsill, but I live in Seattle, so it's pretty humid here. Um.. Just be sure to let it dry out between waterings. And don't move it around a lot. When you pot it, you should make a mound in the center where you plant the ceph to keep it higher above the soil and prevent mold and fungus.
    It is better to burn out, than to fade away....
