    xvart.
    xvart, this is the first time I have rhizomes placed on live sphagnum moss to see how they produce the buds. Other times I just bury them in media and hope for them to grow. Not sure if dividing them works but I would think that a few of the buds would be lost unless they have a tiny piece of the rhizome attached to them. Other than sushi chefs, I can't think of anyone who can slice so thinly and accurately.

    Varun, I totally agree with you on this point. I read it somewhere before or maybe someone mentioned it before...I think it was Phill Mann. I have one large piece of rhizome stuck vertically in media and it has just started producing new growth. Hmm...I could try with the rhizome bits that I showed here since there are a few of them.

    hey, I have a question, it's normal if some of the pitchers (the older ones) on my Ceph are turning like yellow?

    yup! its totally normal. As long as you are seeing steady growth from the plant, loss of pitchers is totally normal. If you see a sudden loss of multiple pitchers which had otherwise developed independently at diff times, then you might have a problem.

    Ok...

    I see maybe 3 or 4 new pitchers (relly baby ones)... only 2 look yellow, and are from the first ones that my ceph develop after I get it (3 months old I will say), so I think they are just old and its time for them to go... for the rest all look bigger and green!

    Well figure I'd toss a few in here though I fear I can not compete with Av...

    And when the master posts shots of his own plants, the student has to make way. Atleast for now. lol! Nice shots B! Your lights are really spectacular. If only I had enough cooling to manage those T5's.
