    I keep mine with the U. alpina colony. I top water about once a week, but my media is mostly LFS, particularly on top.

    You're likely to have a bit of wear and tear just from the shipping of the plant. Don't unduly stress the plant -- setting in direct sun or cooking it in a terrerium for a week or so. Look for new growth as it settles in.
    I routinely received bareroot plants from overseas and even then they are no problem . . .

    I just got my ceph today =)





    It doesn't have any winter leaves though. Are their pitchers and leaves sensitive to human skin? Because I touched it on accident while I was trying to push it in deeper, because it came loose during shipping

    Yes. It will be dead within two months. No really, that would make repotting very difficult.

    No, it won't. Human skin has no noticeable effect on Cephalotus. Where did you hear such a thing or get that idea?
