    So here it is. I got it in the mail on Tuesday. Thanks Ron (RL7836)!

    Here is how it is doing on Saturday morning. I have been watering from the bottom via a tray. I watered the tray when it got here and let it go dry for a couple of days before watering again.

    I know the pictures are not the best, but I am still learning how to get the macro shot.

    So here is my Ceph that I got through the charity auction last week. The larger pitcher opened up and it is hungry.

    I just opened yesterday, and today I noticed while taking pictures that it is full of liquid and has already caught a small gnat.

    Is it normal for Cephs to have that much fluid? One of the older small pitchers seems to be browning. Since the plant seems to be doing well and opening the large pitcher, I didn't think I should be concerned yet. I hope I am right on this. I am already favoring this one in my collection.

    I'm a little worried that my Cephalotus might be rotting because a pitcher leaf broke off today.

    Photo...plus, you might be able to propagate with that leaf.

    I see there's some new Ceph posts, so I'm bumping this thread.

    My 'Hummer's Giant' has colored up nicely. It lost a couple of the smaller pitchers when it was adjusting after shipping, but now it has started two new pitchers and what I think to be 2 non-carnivorous leaves in the last picture. If this is the case, then I think I am going to try to propagate this one when the leaves develop.
