    Fixed up my Cephalotus a little

    My Cephalotus was growing some slime mold on the surface so I scooped out some of the top 1/4'' and replaced it with fresh sand.

    Great looking plant, do you find that they grow better with sand as the upper layer of the pot over moss being the upper layer.

    Um... Hello... Sorry, new in the hobby...
    A quick question... I went on vacation and when I came back more than half of my Ceph's traps had dried... The plant is still alive anyway... To date a normal leaf is growing from the center... Pic HERE
    Is this (the mass driying) normal?

    I don't think so. I think they grow equally well.

    That soil is way too wet. It also doesn't look like it's getting enough light.

    I would recommend letting the soil dry out a little (not bone dry, but the soil is moist). I would also increase light alot.

    The traps dying may be a sign of root rot.

    Yeah... Out of ignorance left it about a week on the water tray with my Dews... I corected humidity already...

    Now, it gets about 6 hour of direct sunlight...

    It's still growing BTW (the pic is about a week old... the leaf on the center has grown lot and a new trap is forming....
