    three new "leaves" coming out of the crown on ceph.

    yes, pix is good. i'll take some tomorrow. two if them are definitely flat leaves. the third one, i can't tell yet. since it looks like there are plenty of flat leaves, should i take one off for leaf pulling? is there certain time of the year that is best for the leaf pulling?

    I think that the best time is winter, which you can simulate in your tank with shortened photoperiods and slightly lower temps. Depending on the size of the plant it might be good to take a cutting seeing that they can be a bit difficult sometimes. Looking forward to pics.

    summer is always better for this stuff because then they have a longer photoperiod and cephs slow down in winter so the plants will be smaller in winter than summer.

    i would wait untill the plant is a little bigger to do leaf cuttings unless it has been growing at a very fast rate lately

    Yes I would wait, but if you are planning to make any changes to the plants environment such as repotting, definitely take a cutting. I was foolish enough a year or too ago to repot an adult plant without taking cuttings, and I lost the whole plant. Very nice looking plant BTW.
