    It's fun to play with their growing conditions

    Thanks for the compliments, but Ive downsized my ceph collection to almost nothing....
    Now here is a pic from the good ol days of ceph growing

    Those two divisions (plus two more) came from one clump

    I find that fertilizer really does seem to help, mine died but came back to life from the roots after I started giving it urea free orchid fert.

    I've heard other people report very good results with APS. It has even been suggested as a suitable replacement for perlite.

    It makes a more or less perfect replacement for perlite. Unless you need a media that separates from the rest of your mix in even a light rain and attracts algal slime like a magnet. I wouldn't suggest it as much as insist upon it if it were more available.

    My attitude toward the concentrated pure Evil that is perlite cannot be described on this polite forum; and I long ago replaced that component with pumice.

    A couple of Cephalotus that I have kept for rhizome divisions have been grown in that inorganic media with some success . . .

    I agree completely, perlite is the great white satan.

    There are two things that are pure evil: perlite and russian dwarf hamsters.

    Yes, especially the hamsters......I wonder if we could replace them with APS too?
