    There's also a Utricularia simplex in flower bottom right. The pot is ~18cm sq x 20cm tall.

    Looks great!

    Anything you would do differently if you built another one? This has always been one of those projects I just haven't gotten to.

    So any lessons learned would be great.

    Yeah, I agree. I've seen photographs of Cephalotus in the wild growing vertically near beaches, and that was what this setup reminded me of. Really nice!

    To be honest, no. It has all worked out really well and I have not experienced any issues. The plants have grown phenomenal fast too.

    Beautiful plants Carl. I always wanted to grow a vertical ceph. I tried two, but only one is growing good. Its growing on a epiweb kind of material (hygrolon). I realized the difference is where the plant was planted. It is close to my truncata x lowii which has LFS top dressing. The ceph grew roots which seeked out the moss and was absorbing the water from there. Thats why it grew well. Only time will tell how it will do in the future once its biomass and requirements increase. Also, I planted a couple more orchids on the wall which are cutting out some of the light...so lets see if it continues to grow well. Would be nice though.

    I also want to try your method of cutting the pot. Thats a great idea. I always wanted to make my mom a nice ceph display for her tabletop. This is a beautiful way to go it. Thanks for sharing.

    What a neat idea! Thank you! I have been doing Utrics similar to this but never considered other genera. Will try some dews this way too.

    It's still doing well:



    I have my Cephalotus Two Peoples Bay in a similar setup:
