    Is this the Cephalotus follicularis you got from me? Wait.. did you get a Cephalotus from me?
    Yes and yes.

    Looks good Mobile. Nice coloring. I have to do a weekly tweezering of moss from around my Cephalotus follicularis. That stuff grows like crazy. Feels like a carpet is growing in my pot.

    Heres the newest addition. Nice color and a nice sized trap.

    Put a dome over her as advised by an experienced grower and she has really grown since last update. Shes done so well I decided to put domes over all of my cephs.









    CZ clone working on a new pitcher. Shes also under a dome...with exhaust holes of course.

    I wouldn't advise on putting a dome over Cephalotus, unless you have some way of creating air circulation within it, as this will significantly increase the humidity and thus the risk of crown rot. You also have to wean Cephalotus off of high humidity if you later decide that you don't want to grow it under a dome.

    The domes are vented and i've actually seen improved growth so i'm going to stick with it. The guy that recommended it has some of the most beautiful cephalotus' i've seen and he swears by it. The terrarium they are in has plenty of air circulation too.

    Ok, it was just a word of caution, as I lost approximately half of my 2009 seedlings which had a dome over them and I swear that it was due to high humidity and lack of air circulation.

    Thanks Mobile. If I notice any decline on any of them i'll be sure to take the domes off. So far, looks like its doing them good.

    Vent holes or not it may not be enough, and I agree with mobile 100%, even if you seen improved growth, it could all change and spiral downhill dramatically if something goes wrong, raising the humidity is not always a good thing, my cephalotus grow like weeds in less than 40% humidity, you just need to think what is best, somewhat faster growth and the higher risk or death? Or slower growth and a higher chance of survival... Ultimately its your decision...
