    Nice plant there . . .

    I would be careful not to keep its soil so wet. Cephalotus are quite susceptible to fungal-borne diseases, including Botrytis -- particularly at that young age; and it's the most common reason for failure in seedlings . . .

    Ok BigBella, actually just the top thin layer is moist peat. The rest (under that) is Peat:Perlite mix. Should this work? the person who gave me this uses peat:Perlite for his cephs, so i guess it should work.

    The mix should be fine but a load of sodden peat moss can be a problem. It should be moist to the touch but nothing beyond that. Some growers put a very thin layer of horticultural sand on the surface to discourage moss and algal growth. Another preventative measure is to immediately remove any dead material and to provide consistent bright light and moving air. Keeping these plants in a sealed container without ventilation is definitely not recommended . . .
