    Cephs in China
    Sometimes I do think I might regret later on...that I will have to smash the pot in order to transplant the plants. :hitmyself:

    My suggestion is to turn the pot upside down to get the plant out. It'll get dirty, but it's the only way to get it out without destroying the pot.

    Very nice Cindy...

    and the T5/Ceph observations could vary greatly kid... too many inter-related variables... but with all the other parameters the same, the T5 does not perform as well as my old lighting system when it comes to cephs.

    However, I have yet to try moving them to a lower shelf... which I suspect would resolve the issue of photoinhibition with my particular setup

    If you ask me would I stop using T5's, that's an easy question...no way!

    But I do reinstall my T12's when Im going to be out of town, just to be safe.

    I guess I'll throw in my "appreciation" now.

    It looks like your Cephalotus there could do well in that rather attractive pot for years; and I've routinely grown many Cephalotus in pottery, and have had little issue in removing them on those rare occasions that I have. Simply loosen the compost around the edges of the pot with a knife and invert it into your hands.

    Trust me that these plants are not made of spun glass . . .
