    I gladly appreciate your experiments on this.

    There is a Cephalotus in the ICPS thread mentioned, which ist drowned for days like a submarine. No ill effects for years.
    In fact the same grower has one which grows now without any symptom of illness for more than 14 years in a row. More than 10 in a tank. He uses a lot of Seramis which is a clay component.
    Besides the wood in the setup is ceramic. But indeed I tried to make it look convincing.


    This is the whole Ceph-arrangement you liked



    Here is most about my ceramic setup.

    I've had alot of questions about bagging divisions lately so I thought I'd show how I handle my divisions.

    I find this works much better than bagging them. I can start to lift a corner a little every week so long as the pitchers look good.

    Also, something to keep and eye out for this time of year!

    6" x 6" X 7" tall, I generally don't use pots that big but this cutting will become my "mother" plant of that clone.

    This is probably a silly question, but knowing Ceph's sensitivity to disturbances of the surrounding soil, how do you guys take the divisions off of the mother plant so that it is not very stressed? There is no avoiding unearthing the plant, right? Or do you strictly take pullings?

    I yank mine out of the pots quite often. I haven't found plants to be extremely sensitive to root disturbance. what I do watch for is the small hair roots. keep as many of those intact and you will be fine. also only work with healthy plants. I get quite brutal with divisions.
