    Ceph pics

    The following is from Ron's thread on his Cephs.

    A little background on my Ceph 'HG'. Purchased back in June 2005.
    It hardly grew, was certainly unhappy but I dragged my feet doing anything with the plant. Finally March 20, 2011 I re-potted the plant. I immediately could see the issue. Half the roots were rotted, the soil waterlogged because the small drainage hole was clogged in the pot.
    I re-potted it into a pot with a lot more drainage hole in the bottom of the pot and used a very airy mix.

    This picture is from November 30, 2010 of my unhappy 'HG' - 5 years looking like this



    Now about 1 year after re-potting







    Now my 'HG' and Typical together

    Very interesting before & after pics. I always love to see pots of your Cephs - so amazingly full of pitchers. I rarely have anything remotely that nice looking (NJ summers outside I think push the top of their heat-tolerance envelope). I especially like the really dark pitcher with the green midrib (just to the left of center) on your HG - very striking. Most years my HG plants do not get that dark - they'll get darker than usual in the middle of winter when it gets really cold in the basement back room - but this year we hardly had a winter so they didn't darken much at all...

    Interesting that there doesn't seem to be the marked difference in peristomes between your HG & typical. Makes me wonder if there is some other environmental variant that I'm missing to cause my HG's to be so different?
    All the best,
    Ron
