    Smile Cephalotus cube display piece

    Hi guys,

    I wanted to make a nice little living room display piece with a Cephalotus follicularis. Here is what I have accomplished so far. I must say I did not expect it to go down this route. I thought it will definitely crash before getting here. I will hopefully update this thread with updates in the future.

    Materials:
    Acrylic box with a hole drilled for drainage, ceph, media, lamp





    3 months ago, added some red live sphagnum moss as a thin top dressing

    Now: 4 months later....




    cheers,

    Varun

    It's very pretty. Would look great in an office or something.

    I just ordered a cehpaltous and was going to throw it outside. After seeing this I am really reconsidering, where did you get the acrylic box? thanks1

    It looks like one of the old "Death-cubes" before they transitioned to the flimsy sheet-plastic boxes. I used to have a few like that.

    I still have the cube my original S. purp came in. Not sure why. But, yes, it looks like one of those.

    You can get those cubes from hobby lobby. I used them for tarantulas and other critters. They are with the other display cases. A few holes can be drilled in the tops to provide some airflow.
