    My apologies - I didn't mean to infer that you did. I just happened to start my rant right after mentioning your post - oops. (I've revised my original rant - er post - to be somewhat more clear).

    LOL many a ceph gave up their life so I/we could learn what didnt work, and from our previous conversations we each use a simular bag of tricks

    Excelent, Thanks to every one for all the information!

    It feels good to know the cephalotus are not so hard to grow...

    As soon as my plant gets here I will take a pic to share, I still have a couple of days to get a nice pot, look for a way to get a small light here (I want to keep this plant on my bedroom) and build a small shelf just for the plant.

    I think it's just one of "those" plants, Mrfus. Either you've just "got the touch" or you don't. Dionaea, Aldrovanda, Drosophyllum, and Darlingtonia are sort of like that, too, at least in the US. I can't grow Dionaea well to save my life. People with far more experience and far better conditions that myself can't grow them, and some people grow them very well without trying. I did use Trichoderma.


    Interesting that they all just happen to be monotypical genera.

    It is one of those species that you would do everything wrong in the beginning and end up killing many. Then suddenly, they start growing for you and you don't quite understand how it could be difficult to grow in the first place!

    Ok... After a full month with my cephalotus and a lot of worry to start here is a pic of how it looks now:

    There is a lot of new grow coming from the plant, so I'm happy, and I have my setup running fine, so I can give my plant more time of light and droop the temperature on the night to 60 with no problem... here is a pic of how my setup looks:

    I will take some more pics tomorrow and I will post the details on the forum.
