    hm, so you grow your Cephalotus in conditions that are wet enough to also grow what looks like U. sandersonii, huh? Maybe I need to keep my poor little cephalotus a bit more wet...

    Thank you! It looks so amazing, more like a work of art than a terrarium. Wonderful!

    Yes, they are U. sandersonii, unfortunately - but they don't need particularly wet media. I've noticed a tendency over the years for Cephalotus mixes to become more and more open and dryer and dryer - which isn't atypical of their natural habitat. I have good ventilation and lighting and don't have any issues with keeping them as above, in Moorland Gold (reclaimed peat) with a capillary reservoir below.

    It looks like a natural field of them in the wild!!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
