    Cephalotus growing on some Driftwood

    Just thought I'd share a picture of a little different way I'm growing these guys. There are currently 3 plants on that wall, all are growing. Two of them were from divisions, the other one was from a picture cutting. I'm 1 of 3 for picture cuttings on that wall. So maybe not the best way to do picture cutting. The oldest one is about 6 months old, so I can't offer any long term experiences but they are doing great so far.

    Some background info on the tank. Its an 18" cube paludarium with 4 20W T5 6.5K bulbs, and there is one very large piece of driftwood in there. A small pump moves water to the top of the driftwood in 8 places and keeps most of the driftwood evenly wet. The Cephalotus are hanging about 8" from the lights on the side of the driftwood, it looks very natural.

    Sorry about the glare off the traps, I could not get the lighting to play nicely. More practice needed I guess.

    That's an interesting way to grow Cephalotus. The moss seems to be very happy.

    Interesting... I am thinking of doing a similar thing with my Pinguicula...
    I found it interesting, but did you know if you have moss growing all over the log, and put the log in a tray of water so the bottom-most moss is in the water tray, that the moss will soak it up, passing it onto to other moss up the log and so the moss doesn't dry out and the plants can get their water from the moss? I'm doing it on a rock I'm attempting to grow Pinguicula on - so far the leaf pullings have not sprouted but the rock stays wet in the brightest of weather without so much as a misting
