    Cephs moved outside

    Now that the frost fear is over I decided to move the cephs out of the terraium and back outside. This is their temp home for a week or so. All made from spare parts around the house.



    After the first week I will remove the shade cloth.

    Look great! Take care of the sky high temps when the full sun will hit the terrarium!

    Definitely agree - you're creating a solar oven. I would also be cautious of acclimation to outside conditions in general. I've killed a few Cephs in this transition. By the time you notice the plant wilting, it may be too late ...

    Thanks for your advise. I have been keeping a close eye on the temps and humidity. They only get a few hrs of direct morning sun at the moment. Only in this setup to wean them from high humidity.

    Mass - nope. I only have a few. Don't you have bigboy already?

    Ron - What would you recommend to increase my success?

    As with most acclimation - move slowly, monitor closely (ie: I don't see a thermometer inside that box). Acclimate them fully to shade and then slowly introduce them to low levels of sun.
    All the best,
