    Cephalotus tips?

    Well, I got little Jimmy here yesterday, any tips besides no excess water, cool summer nights, and winter?

    Yeah don't repot it for a while and if you do don't expose the roots (very sensitive)

    Did it come bareroot to you? Or already potted? If bareroot, be prepared for some dying off of the oldest pitchers.

    It looks very wet to me...

    When you water, water around the perimeter of the pot and not near the crown which can lead to rot.

    Too wet. My Cephalotus is on a slight hill, and I water in the "moat" around it (which, over time, makes it a little deeper, I've been doing it for 1.5 years, it USED to be level with the Cephalotus but now it's a slight hill). I simply put the pot to the sink, turn the cool water on, wait for it to flood a little and go into the soil. Done! Then wait until it gets bone dry and then I water it again. Be careful, don't fertilize, uh... I'm really only experienced with the smaller ones but not baby like that one. I got mine when it JUST moved from baby pitchers to small adult pitchers.

    Personally, I don't wait until it's "bone dry" but I do let it dry out some before re-watering.
