    Keep the pitcher full of (RO/rain/distilled) water, it will increase the chance it stays alive. That, or keep it at 100% humidity. Otherwise it has a tendency to shrivel/dry up.

    I've had better luck in live LFS than in peat mixes for Ceph leaf propagation. However, live LFS isn't my preferred growing media. I used to repot at some point when I saw growth - however, the early disturbance caused me to lose some plants. Now I place some media in a pot then place a bunch of live LFS around the end of the leaf & stick it in the media. I've also switched to small clear pots so I can see the developing roots w/o disturbing them. I've had some ceph strikes actually go many months and send roots out the bottom of the pot before they bothered to send up any above-ground growth. This approach seems to meld the best of all worlds ...
    All the best,

    I have near 100% strike rate in perlite in a terrrarium. The perlite is approx 8cm deep and I maintain a water level of approx 1.5cm at the base. There's a layer of live sphagnum moss on the surface but I clear this out of the way of the cutting, so that it's just in the perlite. It's a small terrarium, lit with four 8W T5 fluorescent tubes (two 2700K and two 6500K), so the light intensity is not very high. There is a small circulating PC fan.
