    Cephalotus: Early Spring 2009

    Here are a few recent shots of Cephalotus cv. "Hummer's Giant," photos taken while I trimmed away an excess of sphagnum moss from around some of the overrun plants. The smaller Cephalotus are recent divisions, taken in February of this year.

    If you're planning to do a bit of Cephalotus re-potting, division, or leaf pulls, now is a fine time (in the Northern Hemisphere) . . .

    Great plants and pictures! Your cephs all look great.

    Remeber my thread on dividing my ceph? Well I figured I just might as well repot the whole thing + do the divisions while I'm at it.
    Any tips on repotting? (I plan on removing all of the media from the roots. Bad idea?)

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    Unless you're driven by madness to do so, I would avoid thoroughly uprooting the plant unless you're very careful. I would simply excavate around the plant in its compost to get a division.

    My advice (for what it's worth) is to re-pot the Cephalotus with its root-ball in place in a larger vessel . . .

    Thanks . . .

    The weather here in Northern California isn't too far off from Albany, Australia -- and the plants love the fog and drizzle . . .
