    Cindy, what is your preferred media mix?

    Just curious...

    Fryster,

    For this pot, it is 50% peat and 40% sand + 10% perlite. For others, I used 50% peat and 50% sand.

    How do people get their Cephs into a "mound" like that? Most pics I see of folks' Cephs, they're all mounded. Or, is that the natural shape of the crowning on the plant?
    Depends on the plant you have--most have a tendency to grow vertical.

    It also depends on the pot you have--larger pots promote more horizontal growth, sometimes by underground "runners." Smaller pots tend to promote more vertical growth.

    At least that's what I've noticed with mine....

    I thought I should take photos of the pitchers in natural light.

    No kidding around this time.... very beautiful colration.

    About mounding.... that has been recommended as a way of preventing the plant from receiving excess water, especially the crown, which could lead to death. It keeps them "high and dry."
