    I currently have some Cephalotus vigerous leaves that I was given which I promptly put into my batch of D. prolifera... this is kept in an open basket full of pure LFS (approx 2" deep)(some of which has come alive from being wet for so long) and constantly kept in water (anywhere from .5" to media level at filling)... From that, I agree that lots of moisture is good for propagation, and honestly, I think I'm going to leave at least one of the plants in there to see how it does! My worst mistake on Cephs? Letting them dry out, just like you say in the video. :-X

    Whole basket- if you're a good looker you can see the dead/dying leaves and maybe some growth from this photo (I didn't pull back enough LFS/plants to show the whole plants) bottom left, bottom right, and top center.




    After the above photo, I started digging around and looking and found this super cute stubby pitcher, although a horrible angle to show it :-\

    I looked at all the video and really like it.
    I know you tell it in the video but could you write down here your best media recipe please.
    My English is not really good and I would like to try your exact recipe.
    Sorry for asking.
    Tks

    I have tried several different media's over the years and all with good success. The last year or two I have settled on equal parts peat, perlite and small orchard bark......my second favorite is equal parts peat, perlite and sand.
