    Wow...I've seen shots of Cephs growing vertically in the wild before but never pygmy dews. Didn't know they could grow that way. Great job!

    It looks stunning
    Btw those bugs are awesome, they're moth flies, and from what i've read about them, they outcompete mosquito's but dont sting.

    The tank was from our time in Japan about 8 years ago, it was so odd I had to pick it up. The lighting is from 2 T5HO's.

    Apparently I'm late to this having just seen it now... LOL

    That is one bizarrely shaped tank, what is it intended use for?

    I am growing/attempting to root a Cephalotus pitcher cutting on a vertical wall in a vampire crab tank but so far it's overgrown with Java moss so I don't know how it's doing now. I'm hoping I will see new growth sprout from where it was set as the pitcher never yellowed an "died"(been there at least 1 month). I can only just see the front of the pitcher poking out of the java moss. It gets watered everyday from misting and is planted on one of my mud backgrounds (kitty litter + peat & LFS). I'll post pics of if it ever kicks in and starts growing.

    I have once myself tried growing a Cephalotus vertically, but it just withered away. I couldn't keep it wet enough. Although, in hind sight, if I had used a simple waterfall like system, It would have been interesting to see how it could have worked out.
