    Flooded Cephalotus

    Some people like to grow Cephalotus in aerated, well drained soil, containing all sorts of materials. So, I decided to go quite the opposite, planting in an un-drained container (Christmas pudding tub), in pure peat and flooded on a weekly basis. I have been growing it this way since Autumn. I last watered it yesterday and here are pictures of it today.

    This is interesting, please keep us posted. I have been careful not to soak my cephalotus although I have been keeping the soil wet at all times.
    Looking for N. Campanulata hybrids. Also would like to grow some nepenthes from seed. Growlist/pic thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-Pete-s-plants

    Very nice, Mobile! You must have good air movement because I don't see any signs of powdery mildew or anything like that.

    It's growing on an open grow-shelf. I have powdery mildew on soil of another Cephalotus, which is kept drier, nearby.
