    neither of them are potted "Shallow"
    the typical came in that 2" pot and will stay there until it needs to be repotted, its 2" by 3 1/2" deep
    and the other is a 6.3" clay terra cotta.
    about 8" deep.
    i only had enough media to fill it up to where it is on my Hummer's

    Oh, they came that way...

    I've always seen people's Cephs all mounded up; maybe they grew that way, I dunno...

    I pre-mounded my typical in an 8" pot when it arrived. I read somewhere that mounded Cephs are happier because it helps keep their crowns dry.

    Nice plant. Very nice coloration too. Do you grow them under halide lights or just good sun?

    I "mound" my plants too. I also plant them in deep pots which allows me to keep them sitting in water without oversaturating the mix. I let the water evaporate and wait a few days before refilling the water in the tray.
