    Great information RSS! thanks for sharing.

    I am also running alittle test thats similar. I repotted one of my cephs and ripped off some of the thin roots in the process. I put them in a shallow dish to see if anything sprouts. Ill report back here. I have has success with thick roots taking, but not the thin ones.....yet.

    What do you do when you see an endangered animal that eats only endangered plants?

    That is a great site. lots of good info in it. Thanks for sharing. Link added above!

    pretty good info about the soil. Reminds me of Av8tors thread about miracle gro.

    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...hlight=miracle

    I still havent tried a pulling in miracle gro yet but it is a test I want to recreate. just need to buy the dirt. I have a few leaves I can spare from my bigger plants. might be my weekend project.

    Can't believe I missed the Miracle Grow thread. So much info out there titled so the searches don't find it.

    Just added APS and Miracle Grow to my shopping list for the weekend. I can always count on the Emu's to provide me with all the leaves I'll ever want. Oddly the 'Big Boy' clone is doing the same thing for me, leaf overload.

    I am testing 9 leaf pulls on the seed starting sponges right now they are just over a month old and only 1 has rotted, I figured I'd lose atleast half within a week. No visible growth yet, but 7 of them still look really healthy.

    I have used a mix that was mostly Turface, Perlite, and a little peat. That mix was less than 10% peat. The plants are growing well. As a matter of fact the German Giant picture I posted earlier is growing in this mix.
    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...ant-cephalotus

    So they do grow, and look quite happy in a completely inorganic mix. However there are a few things I do not like about the mix, and I believe the results will be the same in APS/Turface. The roots are really long, but very thin and fan like. I have since starting repotting my plants out of this mix because of that reason. If you want those big meaty roots Av8tor has in the miacle gro thread you will need more peat in the mix.

    How's the sponge test going? Glad you are going to jump in on the miracle gro with you own tests! Hopefuly we will have similar results.

    I wonder what kind of moss that is that the cephs are growing in. If it doesn't add any nutrients to the soil or change the pH in any way, it may benefit those who grow smaller CP's as a soil dressing.
