    Be sure to keep an eye on the temperatures (like that in their natural location):

    When kept indoors in a terrarium, temperatures increases with the wattage.

    But Cephalotus likes relative chilly temperatures, compared with average room temperature.

    If kept too warm, pitchers will stay more green in the long run.
    If kept chillier, pitchers will show nice red (at the same amount of light).

    Temps shouldn't be a problem. I will use this to keep everything within safe parameters at all time.



    Thank you for the tips on the temperature coloration. I appreciate it!

    Some more to post.

    Thought I would post a few more of my Cephalotus Typical collection that I have going. They have been acclimated for a little while in the grow rack, They are all now starting to ramp up growth point production/pitcher production. I thought I would take some "Youngster pics" before they take off.

    Substrate- 1 part milled Sphagnum moss
    1 part Sand
    1 part Peat
    1 1/2 parts Perlite
    1 part horticultural charcoal.

    This is Cephalotus 1- Shown earlier. Now it is showing 3 new growth points. Scheduled to be repotted next week with all the rest of the small ones.



    Cephalotus 2- (5 inch pot)Slow to acclimate after shipping, but now is throwing new pitchers again. (2nd pic)



    Cephalotus 3(5 inch pot) - This is my most vigorous one and now my favorite. This was a little guy when I got it. Now it has 3 new growth points that are really taking off.




    Cephalotus 4 - Baby It is a tiny little guy that I thought was dead from shipping...Low and behold a month later...out comes some growth!


    Cephalotus 5- Big Baby. Another slow goer like his brother but a little bigger.


    Cephalotus 6.......Well that one is on it's way.

    Thanks guys. These guys are on autopilot on the grow rack. I give them what they want and they are rewarding me for it now!
    They are a very slow growing species so why do I stare at them the most!

    They will be going into the new CP grow room in the basement that is currently under construction. But that's another thread.
