    I grew some back in the early 90s in straight peat. Put out around 3" pitchers.
    When the growth started to decline a couple of years later, I unpotted and PHEW, it stunk.
    Separated and repotted and all was fine.
    Point to Exo-not picky about the mix.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I think I've got 7 pots of cephalotus all in different media. They're all doing fine but the one in pure LFS is doing much better. I know it's a risky material but I've been keeping it only a little moist.
    I've observed that cephalotus prefers being moist + humid instead of dry; but that's just my opinion.

    german giant,

    Yours is definitely putting out a lot of leaves.

    Yes, they always do this when spring comes. It starts to get very hot + humid here in Istanbul in May/June; that's when they stop with the leaves and start pitchering. I tell myself every year I'm going to do some leaf pullings but still can't bring myself to do it...Maybe this summer :0)
