    Springtime Ceph Pix.

    This pot of cephs I put outside a few weeks ago.
    They just love the Spring weather here with the cool nights.
    They are starting to color up pretty good, probably in another week or two they will be all red. They recieve full sun from sunrise to about 1pm. These are all Hummers Giants, just not really showing there full potential at the moment.
    The more sun you give them will keep the pitchers a bit smaller. They are putting out more leaves than pitchers right now too.

    Thanks!
    I have these growing in 2 parts peat, 1 part sand, 1 part perlite.
    The pot is 12 inches across, 6 inches deep. Very similar to a bulb pot.
    They have been in that pot for the past two years.
    There is also some live Sphagnum moss on top although it's just starting to come back from the winter.

    Thanks! Hmmm... I thought they were supposed to be in taller pots because their roots get big? Do you find little roots trying to escape the bottom ever (does the pot have holes on the bottom and you sit it in a tray or you topwater or ?)? Mine like to root-bind themselves in 5-6" pots... in fact the roots just hang out white and shiny among the perlite in the sitting water (the tray I leave the pots in washes out the peat after a year at the bottom).

    Oh man, I just wrote a huge paragraph on how I grew cephs in a fish tank and it's all gone! took me so long I got logged out and now it is missing!
    Anyway, I can't go threw that again right now. The point I was trying to make was that I have had ceph plants that had 16+ inches of roots per plant. Yes I'm serious.
    You grow them in tanks suspendid off the bottom growing on the wick system and they will seek out the water. Man I'm wiped out now! Lol.
    If you want to know the set up I had I can try to explain it all again later.
    Too frustrating typing a huge thing and losing it all.
    I need a beer!
