    Pic of my Ceph

    Just thought I'd post a pic of the Ceph I got last month, so here it is.....





    So far it seems to be doing pretty good. I'm not thrilled with the soil it came in since it seems a bit dense (looks like half peat, half coarse sand) but since it seems to be doing well I've been reluctant to repot it. It recently lost a few of the tiny pitchers and two leaves, but it has a new growth point forming so I'm not overly worried about it.

    Not bad, huh?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Not even close.. I'm on the verge of spending $120 for a large "Hummer's Giant". I WANT ONE!! And I want it to be big NOW! Will a Ceph do good in my grow box? 74degF & 75% humidity 24/7..

    Yeah, I love my Ceph, although I'm a bit worried about the soil it came in.....not really sure what I should do about that......to repot or not to repot, that is the question.

    I think you need to water your Ceph. That soil looks really dry

    Personally, I would leave it in the soil that it's in. The plant looks healthy so why risk re-potting when it's not necessary? Until recently re-potted, my Cephalotus, pictured HERE was in poor quality peat that had turned black and compacted into solid lumps but as you can see, the plant is growing well. Cephalotus seem to be far less fussy about soil than VFT for me.
