    As in, plant it in a jar? I'm afraid I don't understand. Sounds like a very bad idea to me - Cephalotus needs drainage.

    Cephs need drainage as seedjar said. It would be a bad idea to jar it in my opinion. Not only drainage, they need to have good air circulation.

    Yes I read this also

    However I believe it can be created in a way such as to support drainage and provide a clear indication of the volume and thus will help to produce humidity, thus creating the correct conditions.

    You know I was told I could not breed a high spec fish in a 2ft tank with plants it took 5 years but I achieved it....

    I was thinking just to try and post the project online ...

    Any comments

    Humitidy is not important for Cephalotus. You'll rot it. If you really want to spend another five years doing things the hard way, be my guest, but this isn't how they grow in the wild and it's the polar opposite of the cultivation techniques proven by hundreds or thousands of growers.
    Cephs are expensive. I hope you've got a lot of money to spare.

    Well

    What do you call expensive, £11.50 is not cheap but then I paid alot of money for fish, so ...

    What if the idea did work you see, as like with aquatic plants and marine you can have everything right move it 2 inch and it will die...

    Tough game and one I think we all take for granted...

    I have also read you can do the same with Sundew and Butterworts

    I could always test with out the plant in it first I guess
    and get a reading, I have some things on the way, so once I have this then I can try and see if it works I can not see why rot will occur if it does not breath... to warm it will steam it and cook it...

    Which is why I would put a meter in to test else remove the lid and see

    If the idea works then all can do it how long you think to kill it month or 2 before you think the idea will fail ?

    Since I noticed elgecko grows his in a 10 gallon terrarium, which means they will grow in a glass housing, but the watering would be the only issue.

    Close montioring I think

    Noddy, you are nuts. You first want to grow VFTs in an egg thing and now this, and have been ignoring our advice for the most part... why?

    Yes, I agree with Kayota. Just don't put CPs in jars or eggs. Plus, putting a plant in a 10 gallon tank and in a jar is a BIG difference. The only possible way if you keep the top open, but even then, there will be little room (depending on size and plant).
