    Natural Companion Plants for Cephalotus?

    I'm working on making a "cove" type area with a slope to grow some Ceph's on and I was thinking some of the natural plants that grow with Ceph's would look good.

    They would need to stay under 12" tall and be able to survive 40ish% humidity as this project will be under T5 lights without a top. Some of the bottom mud will flood with about 1/2" of water then almost dry out before being reflooded. The lowest winter temps these will be exposed to would be 55-60, summer 75-80.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    You can see the progress and what I'm working with here http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=122053.

    I think he is looking for "native" plants that actually are from the same region.

    From this article http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn...n4p119_121.pdf it looks like D. pulchella is native.

    So we have D. hamiltonii and D. pulchella so far.

    I had some pygmy Drosera growing with my Cephalotus before I transplanted them.

    There are a few threads on ICPS forum from folks visiting their native habitat. Here's one: Pretty interesting pics showing some coarse white media. On companion plants:
    D. spathulata doesn't grow here. D pulchella and D. hamiltonii are the only Drosera growing with the Ceph's.
    All the best,
