    New to Cephalotus follicularis

    Hey have read some of the tips that you have posted on the Cephalotus, after think a little bit I decide to give it a chance and I will be geting one on the week...

    I have a question, should I repot the plant as soon I get it?

    I usually do that with my nepenthes and no one have show any problem at all, but with the Cephalotus Im not sure about to keep it as is or repot and let the plant recover from the shiping shock and the repot at the same time.

    Thanks

    Cephalotus hates having its roots disturbed.
    good luck!

    No don't. If you are ever going to repot, don't repot it till a few years and make sure it's a big pot where it can grow for awhile. I've heard that when you repot, you should take it out with the whole thing of soil (like transplanting regular plants for gardens) and put it in the new pot and fill the space left. Hope that helps .

    I'd keep it in the pot until it starts to outgrow it. I've read 2 years elsewhere, though.

    it likes it's soil on the dryer side you can grow it on the tray method but with only like water a quarter inch and let the tray stay dry for several days inbetween waterings. If you water it like a nepenthes then water around the edge of the pot instead of near the plant.

    It generally takes quite a while for one to outgrow a pot, for me at least.

    I think the "every 2 years" is for soil change. My ceph soil goes bad after about 3 years.

    You can tell by the smell...

    what about light?

    I will grow it indoors on my room and I was thinking to use Flourescent Lights, how long is the photoperiod for the Cephalotus?

    I have read some people say 12 to 16 hours, and the reduce to 8 to 10 on winter...
