    Oh noes! What did I do!?

    Well, here was my Heliamphora minor a few months ago...



    And now it looks like this...



    And it seems my Ceph has developed a blank corner, in what used to be a full pot...




    Seems I got the bug, and made some divisions!










    This is my first time dividing, or even repotting the H. minor in the 3+ years I've owned it. So I'm hoping it all goes well. It divided very easily, and into divisions that are each about 3x the size of the original plant when I bought it. Plus I got a couple tiny ones out of it, too. The Cephs were intended to just be pulls (I like to pull rosettes of pitchers, rather than individual pitchers/leaves), but it seems that a large portion of the plant is growing completely above the soil altogether, so these little ones all came right out with no force at all, roots and all.

    I set up a 10 gallon specifically for these divisions, however, the lighting is more intense than the terrarium they're currently in, so I may shade it a bit until they settle in.

    Impressive. They'll fill those pots in no time at all.

    Hopefully. I really intended to keep one large plant, and take a few smaller divisions, but the whole thing just naturally separated into 3 nearly identical plants...so, oh well. I'll be keeping the one that's back in the original terrarium, and the rest will be up for trade when the weather is warmer, and they've established for a bit.
