    Sand/peat 50:50, sealed inside ziploc plastic bags to maintain humidity. Possibly too much continuous moisture and not enough prey for nutrition. I plan to make some environmental changes, such as peat/perlite in larger pots so I can remove from the ziplic bags and not have them dry out too quickly.

    I can't help but think, "What if this species never got any larger than these tiny seedlings?". Though tiny, I'm sure those pitchers are functional. Would we humans have ever discovered this pitcher plant species if it only developed 3mm (1/8 inch) pitchers.

    Even when tiny they certainly are intricately detailed little pitchers.

    Do you all think Cephs would thrive in a super airy medium with a drip line so oxygenated water constantly runs over the roots?

    Yeah, they would probably love it....so would cobra plants if the water was cold.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Doesn't Mobile have a thread on growing Cephalotus hydroponically? (Although this may be the thread I remembered...)
