    Just divided and repotted my Cephalotus

    I took a hobby knife and divided my Cephalotus and transplanted it into a larger pot.


    I will bet $9.86 that the plant will go into shock. I hope I don't lose it

    Good luck, I'll keep my fingers crossed for it to pull through.

    I just repotted my cephs. One seems fine, the other has is aborting about half its pitchers. Treated both the same. But I think they'll both pull through. Cephs can be tougher than given credit for, so yours will likely be fine after a while.

    are they actually "Rotting" or turning yellow and dying? I had my ceph go into shock and turn yellow and die, but eventually everything grew back from the roots.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    The bases of the leaves are turning black and when I gently tug the leaf, it falls right off

    Shock is normal to some extent. Just baby it and keep it damp but not wet. I'm going to suggest trichoderma for any time you mess with repoting or dividing a ceph. I did 3 recently and lost only a few leaves and pitchers. Before potting I put a good amount of the trichoderma in the hole. Awesome stuff ! Do a search of threads here and you can find someone that sells the stuff !
