    My new Cephalotus




    Just received this young adult in the mail yesterday. I had to take pictures of it basking in it's first ever NY morning sun.

    Looking good and healthy. Nice color too. Don't be surprised if the large pitcher's life is cut short - cephalotus doesn't travel well in the mail. With proper care it'll soon start pitchering profusely for you.

    Grow temps


    These are the current grow conditions in the little green house that it is going to live in.

    I have 3 more of these little beasts on order scheduled to ship out beginning of the week. (different sources)

    I will have to say though, The company this one came from packaged to ship with remarkable precision. Complete with bubble wrap, a protective dome lined at the soil line with foam so the cap didn't crush into the soil. I was impressed.

    Thank you for all you positive comments, I hope to have a great time with these little guys.

    I plan on keeping that beautiful hue shining bright. If it starts to fade under the 4ft flouro's then I will blast it with a 400 watt metal halide hortilux.
