    Thanks guys, my first full growing season for these and propagating from leaves, and I am proud of my babies.

    A big thank you to Jerry for giving me the opportunity to try my hand at these amazing plants and to all who advised me on how to grow them successfully.

    Yeah, definitely worth the wait! I had success in a tray of moss and in a pot of peat/sand. This leaf pulling stuff is addicting, LOL.

    Haha. Glad you like it. It is recycled crushed glass called TriVitro used for sandblasting, much cheaper than pool or other silica sand and I can get it locally. A little distracting as a top dressing, but I figure once the plants grow it will not be so much.

    Hehehe, isn't growing Cephs from leaf oullings fun?

    Awesome plants!
    Yeah, fun and very addicting. Should come with some kind of warning, haha.

    Are these all outdoors?
    I didn't know what I was doing, but Jerry made it look so easy and willing to share his "secrets" that I had to try.

    They are grown inside. The big ones are on a window sill and the babies are under a shop light, I just took them outside to get better pics. I tried to grow the Hummer outside once and almost murdered it by doing so.

    Jerry and I are in the process of setting up a windowsill ceph area here. I supplied the hardware, and he's supplying the software.

    Those look great, DJ! Mass is right - you do come across as a newbie when you are very accomplished. 'Guess that's what humility looks like, huh?

    Thank you Mark.

    Overconfidence gets me in trouble every time, hate murdering stuff, and can never have too much information,
