    What's everyone using for Cephalotus substrate?

    I know that Cephalotus can be grown in a variety of different ways and in different soil. I am thinking that my little guy is in need of a re-pot soon and I'm just curious to see what everyone is using as their soil blend these days.

    I was thinking about a mixture of sand and peat, maybe some milled LFS...


    What do you use?

    I have mine in peat and sand, which seems to work okay, but if I were to repot today I think I would use the "Charles Brewer Mix" that Paul and a few others use. It's chunkier and similar to a Nepenthes mix (http://www.foxoles.dsl.pipex.com/cephalotusfollil.html)

    I use about 1 part peat to 3 parts sand, mixed course and fine. After experimenting with many mixes, I've found simple is better.

    I use equal parts of peat, sand, perlite, and turface. Usually some cypress chunks at the bottom.

    Charles Brewer mix if I have the time (~precious plant~). Otherwise, it is Russian roulette of whatever I have on hand.

    Mine are in a LFS / bark mix just like the Nepenthes they grow next to in my HL tank. I dunno if they like it or not but that's what they are growing in anyway. Might put them on a tray cos they do dry out awful quick
