    "withstood" simply means they won't burst into flames after a day or two of hot temps..but if it's hot all the time they pretty much give up and die.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Nice Ceph you have there eou812.....but that grow chamber looks like a recipe for a house fire. The Cardboard is going to warp like mad when coupled with the humidity your going to throw at it. You might come in and see the bulb laying on top on your precious Ceph one day. That wouldn't be a good thing.

    for some reason my post didnt register? weird...

    OK so take 2 then,

    EOU i will chime in with the others in saying you need to get more ventilation, and build up of moisture on the crown of these plants can be detrimental, and being too humid will do that very easily...
    Next, your lighting.
    You need more lighting, plain and simple IMO.
    Cephalotus like a lot of light, and if you hope to retain that color and the health of the plant, and not have them end up like a certain ex-members, then you might considering investing in some shop light fixtures, T12 will work fine but you can use T8s and use fewer bulbs.

    What is the media you have it planted in?
    did you receive it potted or bareroot?

    i grow my cephalotus in with my intermediate lowland plants and use 3x 2foot 2 bulb fixtures (6 bulbs total) and have use a combination of daylight and cool white spectrum bulbs, hence the strange coloring your going to see in this photo, they are certainly not as dull as they luck as my camera decided it wanted to use its flash haha. The tank is a 30 gallon tank set on its side, with the top facing out, and completely opened allowing for ventilation.

    Not sure what the media it is in because i just got it yesterday but i will ask the people i bought it from. I recived it potted. I have tin foil surrounding the inside do you think that is enough light? andni will try to keep a fan blowing on it i am also leaving it alone on humidity it doesn't really need high humidity so there won't be much humidity. Also i will be keeping it damp not to dry and not waterlogged. Thanks anymore questions because if you do i am glad i need all of the help i can get!

    Try getting a big plastic tub with a lid, you can always keep water in that and have the plants sitting on top of something and out of the water. That will help with humidity, You can still wrap it with foil. They have large ones at dollor stores for like 12$. You can still use that light maybe more of them for sure. If you shop around you can find higher wat 6500k and others that give more lumens. a mix of k rating will be best. for a fan u can cut a hole in the top and put a small desk fan over the hole pulling air out and put a small hole on the back somewhere for air to come in.
