    Cephalotus Looking Ok?

    A quick forward: I received 3 leaf pullings from a very generous user about 6 months ago now, 2 of which took (HG and Phil Mann) they were started in LFS and I let them sit until tonight. The Phil Mann was starting to brown a little bit in its bag, having gone untouched. So I finally manned up (no pun intended) and transplanted both of the pullings into a peat/sand mix iwht some perlite and LFS thrown into for airiness and put them back into their respective bags to acclimate. This mixture will definitely be less moist which I think their roots will appreciate. I put a thin layer of sand on top to prevent mold and gave them a dusting of disease killer for good measure. Pictured is the Phil Mann, which was the worse looking of the two, but had a much larger root then the HG surprisingly. Thoughts on the health or suggestions to keep em alive?
    Thanks as always,
    Kyle

    its hard to tell from the pic, but any plant with new growth is a good sign.
    what did you dust the plant with?
