    That might be an issue, I'll have to get some bugs this weekend and see if that helps out.

    Well this Cephalotus is getting more light than other Cephalotus that are nice red/purple in color. So its not a lighting issue. Something else.

    To be honest, if they're growing so well like that anyway I wouldn't be worried about the colour... unless you really want colour.

    What I do for feeding my Cephalotus is beta fish food pellets. I learned this from cplantaholic, I fed mine some around a month or two ago and they're starting to have much better growth now.

    The Cephalotus looks awesome btw!! WOW! I really want to try this now!! I wonder what other plants can grow on a wall?! :-o

    I don't know what made them start hardening/coloring up but they look much better now. I did not remember to feed them . Maybe the colder temps, who knows...if they keep getting color at the rate they are now, they should look great come new years. The main pitcher there is 1 5/8" from top to bottom.

    Cephalotus typical

    And the little one.

    Might as well update this one too.

    The big Cephalotus has colored up some, although I'm still hoping for more color. I don't understand Cephalotus coloration...the same clone under less light is way darker than this one. Anyway here he is.


    The little one has split and is now 2 little ones . Please someone tell me how to not grow moss.....I flooded the tank last week, the water level has never been that high before, and I'll probably just flood it twice a year. 1" of water has exaporated since I flooded it last Sunday.

    I think that it's as much to do with the light colour as the intensity. I find that Cephalotus colour up nicely under white LED. Most white LEDs are actually blue with phosphor coating, therefore have a strong peak in the blue spectrum. I have read that levels of anthocyanin, the plant pigment responsible for colouration, increase under blue or UV light.
