    Very nice seedlings.

    I still have a few Cephalotus sending up flower scapes and will collect seed when that time arrives (one scape is already 60 cm high and growing). I have received better results by far by futzing with the flowers than not; but everyone's experience is somewhat different, especially with these nasty little plants . . .

    Out of curiosity, did you stratify your seeds or plant them outright? I have had similar results either way . . .

    I stratified some of the seed Ron gave away. For some reason it never sprouted -- I'm sure I just did something wrong.

    Good luck with them cuttings, Bella!

    No stratification - just placed in the media - barely covered.
    All the best,

    My ceph I've had for over 5 years has 3 flower stalks coming up.It is in a 20 long tank and with them growing so tall should I try to divert them from hitting the lights or what do you folks think I should do?

    Growers often bend or stake them to grow along tops of tanks, since the flower stalks can be in excess of 60 cm (about 2 ft.); otherwise, if you're not too taken by the flowers themselves, you can snip them off and save the plant a costly energy expenditure . . .

    Both are still looking fine as of this morning -- no discoloration or wilting . . .
