    yeah, mine seemed to take six months just to settle in...

    I have never had it happen to me, but many growers report a mysterious 'death' of their plants even when it's set up in a good enviornment...

    if this happens with your new plant, don't sweat it, keep the pot around, many many times the plant comes back.

    keepem in a deep pot, the suckers have HUGE tap roots.

    Ceph88,

    I have been thinking of growing a ceph I am aquiring from my brother-in-law outside on my deck... you know my south texas conditions... what do you think?

    We get a 10 to 15 degree temperature drop between day and nigth, average summer temps are in the mid to high 90's... humidity is around 60% for the most part right now...

    Exact same conditions with me RamPuppy. I live in Lubbock, Texas and it is the exact same here. What I usually do for my Cobra Lily and VFTs and Pitchers is I let them get full sun in morning light then I bring them in when it gets hot. I put them in a terrarium where I just set them under grow lights. Then I let them get some settting sun light which doesn't hurt them. They do fine. But would the conditions be ok for a Cephalotus.


    The bad thing is I don't know of anywhere where I could get one. It would be even more rare if I could find one planted in a pot.

    Does anyone know a good place to buy a Ceph? A place that will ship to AK would be great [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't have any problem shipping to Alaska. I can ship in pot also for small orders. Just hit the homepage button at the bottom of this post. The online pricelist link from there will take you to everything I have available (yes Cephalotus).

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
