    My dying Cephalotus...

    I just got this plant about a month ago. You can see my posts in previous threads. Now it's sadly turned into this. Is there any HOPE? Is there any chance of survival here? I have given the plant full lighting, and have watered it once every few days. I keep a 15 W uvb/uva light on the plant at all times. I do NOT keep the plant in standing water. Yet, as you can see in the photos, it is dying. Any help, any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

    Man, that doesn't look to great, maybe give it a distinct photoperiod. What's your substrate like?

    Maybe too hot. Also maybe stagnant air? If those drosophylla are being hatched in the same environment that the plant is kept in, it's probably too hot and stale for it to thrive. Also, despite not standing it in water, it looks awfully wet.

    UV is harmful to plants, as it is to most cells, why are you using this type of light? What conditions do you have this plant in, i.e. humidity and temperature?

    Possibly attracted by the UV-A.

    Yeah, the flies are there because I gave the plant a feeding prior to taking the picture. They're completely harmless and not the cause of the plant's downfall.
