    *Wonders how he missed this thread* I also appreciate Cephs. One of my favorite CPs.
    Especially how they clump over time .

    Here's a few I got this past July. Plants were cloned from seed a Canadian grower got from the ICPS. The last link is one planted out from TC by the grower 3 months before I got mine and they're colored up real nicely..now I'm looking for any giant form but they're really scarce for us Canucks.

    Temps in the GH this summer are 60/68F at night and 85/95 during the day according to my digi thermometer at soil level so they get nice drops in temperature at night. I have a 1/4 piece of plexiglass between them and direct sunlight so I guess the light intensity is more "diffused" when it reaches the plants (hence the greeness) even though they're out about 3-4 hrs in direct sun. I soak them to soil level once a week for 15 mins and mid-week they usually get one top watering around it's perimeter. They don't sit in saucers. All the red coloured stuff is "pre" my possession and all the green is basically since July. Media mix is 1/1/1 (peat/perlite/pool sand), plant sits on a mound with LFS around the perimeter of the pot. Plants are probably 1.75-2" in diameter now, 1.5" when I got them.

    Well this is my Cepalotus... has being 5 months since I get it.

    Cephalotus

    It have a rough trip, I was worried that it wasn't going to recover, but it's doing ok, growing slow but steady... the only original part on the plant is the big pitcher the rest is new grow after 5 months.

    CUTE
    Everyone has such cute little cephalotus. I have 2 cephalotus. One of mine is sort of like these cute little ones, except its a little bigger, and very, very symmetrical. It has 2 growth points but its biggest one is just like an exactly symetrical rosette. It's also begun making small, but definitely mature shaped pitchers.
    My second one is very happy. It has too many growth points to count and is definitely termed a 'clump'.
    They seem to thrive on my windowsill at my nanas, taking only 1 month to acclimatise and begin growing, and beginning to grow new growth points almost straight after settling in. I'm actually waiting for my bigger one to decide to flower - but I don't know if its large enough yet. It may need to grow just a tad more.
    Anyway. Mine cost me 22.00$ for the big one, the little one came free.

    Do you rotate your plant?

    I use to... but I start forgeting to do it, and it looks like as for all green plants the new grow on my ceph is pointing to the side where is more exposed to the sun.

    For how long you have being taking care of your cephalotus Kath?
