    Hi Jeff, thanks for explaining. I keep the media very quick draining so perhaps that is the reason why there is no slime mould. Also, the humidity at my balcony can fluctuate between 40%-90% within the same day this season.

    Hi Daren, I use mostly sand and peat (1:1) with some pine bark pieces.

    Hi Cindy,
    do you find a course sand type to work better than a finer sand type . i mean a finer sand would compact more possiably damaging the roots an would retain more moisture. i ask this because i had had my first Ceph's die due to root rot, an your media appears to be very wet .

    Thanks Daren

    Hi Daren,

    The sand I use is actually aquarium gravel. Each grain is about 3mm. I use this grade because it is readily available. I have not tried using others though.

    From what I observed, the sand that the wild Cephs grow in is the finer white type and the peat is rather soggy.
