    Truly amazing. Having these pictures to see is just sooo useful to understand the ecology of the plants. THanks Cindy. DId u have an opportunity to scoop some of the media beside the plants and try to see what it was made of? It looks like a clay/sand media.

    Great photos!

    I like the green pitchers with the red teeth. Best color arrangements I think.

    Varun,

    I was told that the media is slightly different for all the four sites.

    Site 1 = soggy fine peat, fine sand
    Site 2 = moist coarse peat, coarse sand
    Site 3 = barely moist fine peat, fine sand
    Site 4 = no peat, moist, just roots of surrounding plants and some spongey material which was reckoned to be dead moss

    Apparently, media seems to play a part in colouring up the Cephs other than light intensity. Particularly for Site 4. However, arguing with my guide who is into this species for 20 years is useless. He thinks it is a clone that colours up easily. (Apologies, Shifu...I still think I am right about the "special" ingredient in the media. LOL)
