    You have a truly beautiful Cephalotus and hope mine will grow as beautifully as yours. I have made a schedule for watering and hope the plant accepts it.

    Good luck. Keep in mind that in its natural habitat, it often grows on sandy slopes where water is almost constantly trickling through its root zone. I suspect that if all other conditions are right, it will tolerate staying quite damp. However, I would not advise letting it sit in a tray of standing water.

    Here is an update pic from today, about a month after the previous photo. With any luck, yours will look as good as this in a years time!:

    Some yellow pitchers....



    I guess it has to lose a few for proper acclimation. Yellowing is a precursor to a dead pitcher correct?

    Alright, I have had my little plant for about one and a half months with little trouble. I have it in a terrarium under a 2ft T5 HO light with a repti fogger keeping the humidity.........satisfactory.

    Cephalotus are tolerant of a variety of conditions, hence the vast array of conflicting advice. Personally I grow mine on the wet side - standing in a saucer of water. Your local conditions can make a big difference on how you grow them, so advise from someone who lives in a different climate to you might not be applicable.
