    My ceph is alive!

    Yesterday I found that my last pitcher on my seed grown ceph had died. This pretty much made me give up all hope. It looked like a sad dead plant. it went from 100% healthy to a single picther in 6 months. Its growth point had died in some way, but I have no clue why. So I went to look at the lower part of the stem to see 2 tiny nodes already active and growing! I just looked around the stem and I can see 3 little green dots!

    Very nice. Give it some good light and don't keep the soil too wet and it'll be fine

    Congrats. Now just try to give it optimal conditions, and you should be fine.

    It'd be a real shame to lose a seed grown one.

    If you have nodes does that mean plants acclimated to your conditions already?

    Yay. But I would say keep down the water, seems a bit too wet. Or was it recently watered when you took the picture?
