    die off is expected...when i got my ceph, 2 pitchers died within a week after (but considering the fact that there were 15+ pitchers to begin with....)

    cephs are very similar to helis in that they like high humidity but need to be well ventilated and kept cool. mine seems to be very content with highlander conditions. and while you're at it, Av8tor posted on a thread comment that cephs seem to gain nutrients primarily from the roots, not traps. max sea ferts at quarter strength of the recomended dose (perhaps even smaller if you want to play it safe) would probably jump start your ceph. just remember to flush the pot with a good amount of dH2O the day after.

    Hi,

    A photo would help with the diagnostic.

    My ceph lost 3 small pitchers and two leaves, but is sending ip two new growth points rather fast......must just be a ceph thing.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I don't find that Cepahalotus need high humidity or to be kept particularly cool. In fact, unless you are careful with ventilation, high humidity and cool temperatures will cause rot. The environment that Cephalotus come from is quite different to that of Heliamphora. Mine get whatever temperature and humidity he room is at, which varies significantly during the year.

    i dont know how to post photos in this forum.
    Upload the image to a photo hosting site, such as http://tinypic.com/, resizing it to 800 x 600 then copy the [img]...[/img] code created and paste it directly into your forum post. Every hosting site has its own way of working and terms and conditions so you might want to familiarize yourself with them.

    Cephalotus can 'sulk' a little when put in a new environment. It's not unusual to lose a few pitchers on a plant that has been in the mail. The leaves look glossy, which is a good sign. Cephalotus leaves tend to go dull and flaccid when the plant is in trouble.
