    Cool New Cephs

    So just got these things today as a product of a slightly delayed NASC auction. They were more impressive than I was expecting. The pots look ever so slightly small, should I transplant them now or wait until spring? I have them outside under shade cloth, some of the older looking pitchers look a bit wilty and some of the lids have closed up. Is this just normal acclimation syndrome?

    i heard that if the lid is closing, it means its getting low humidity, dont know if its true or not.

    They look great . Usually, when the lids close, it's humidity, but in this case, I have no idea.

    In general, I like to repot new arrivals so I can get a look at their roots & assess their condition as well as the status of the mix. By repotting, I also get them into a mix with which I'm familiar.

    Looks like a few pitchers are toast (6 & 2 o'clock). In general, nothing to worry about after a shock of some sort.
    All the best,

    I can't see any, but if you find any "winter leaves", it would be a good idea to pull mature ones and start them in live LFS as backups and tradebait.

    Here's a few of them:
