Well, my cephalotus has been surviving in my window since I moved into the new house, so I thought I'd share a few pictures. It's been through a few rough patches, and more than one run in with the cat, but so far I've managed to keep it alive and green.
But not green enough! The dead leaves were really becoming an eyesore, so I took the scissors and tweezers to it to give it a nice thorough cleaning, and the little guy surprised me. There are a lot more growing points than I remember I count five now!
I know they're very green and don't have a lot of coloration. I will have a lighting system soon, so I can empty my window jungle onto a larger, better-lit shelf. I just haven't had the time or motivation to build one yet since moving.
Anyways, I'm very pleased with this guy, but one can never have enough. There are so many leaves on these plants, and I have not had many leaf pullings fail on me in the past; only problem is, this would be my first ceph pulling. I've read a bit on the subject, still have some more to learn, but is now the right time? I know repotting and root cuttings are suggested at a certain time of year, but I can't imagine there being many limitations on leaf pullings. Thoughts?
