    light levels and cephalotus....

    Noticing just how much a 4" raise closer to the lights really impacts the plants.......
    i would always get pitchers that were primarily green with dark teeth and red splotches, and the pitchers it came with back in June when i got it were a nice crimson red....
    so i just propped them ontop of the bottom of an empty pot, which raised them about 3 1/2 - 4" and its made a huge difference....
    now that i have found the sweet spot for growing them in my collection, i feel a bit more comfortable experimenting with them, and have had several leaf pullings strike in the last few days after only being pulled for a few weeks now....
    Here are some before and after shots of the cephalotus i am referring to though...
    here it was back on the 28th of October...mostly greens with hints of red...


    and now

    They're looking good! Looks like you're coming down with some form of Cephalitis.
