    I would pull the "winter leaf' and see if you can get that to sprout.

    Also, heat and lack of aircirculation is the spell of doom for a ceph (more so than any other CP IMO). Their hairy pitchers and foliage are prone to trapping drops of water and encouraging fungal/pathogenic growth.

    well i have good news and bad.
    it died all the way back to just the growth points but they are still alive and healthy now that i have reduced the watering to once a week and i see a new growth point coming up. I'll try to get pics up when it looks better. Thanks.

    personally, i think you are watering it too much still. once every other week sounds better. but keep humidity up along with good air circulation.

    its in a small pot and hope to re pot when its adjusted and growing well but a result of the small pot is it dries out very fast.

    When you do water, water around the perimeter and avoid the crown of the plant. This has helped my plants a great deal.

    When it gets better and forms a small pitcher, feed it with a tiny Betta fish food pellet. I have a package of something called BettaBioGold I am just about done with. It worked great for the tiny pitchers of my plants giving them a nice little boost. Now I will have to investigate to find a better food because the new BetaBioGold is different and has wheat listed as the first ingredient.

    Hi, all. I am also new to ceph. After have reading your replies, I am confused. Here are my confusions:

    (1) If I grow my cephs outdoors, and in my local area almost every day is sunny, what's the watering frequency should I keep? Once every day? or Once or twice per week? My cephs generally receive direct sunlight for 4 hours.

    (2) My cephs in standard 3inch pots and I use the tray-method to grow them. So, in my case, what's the water-level should I keep? Currently, the water-level is 1-cm. Is this OK?

    (3) In summary, can I say: to grow cephs, the soil needs to be kept drier than other CPs?

    Thanks.

    If you know other unique plants that can walk, can talk, can sing, or can eat people, please tell me and I definitely want to get one.
