    Hello all!
    I have been reading about Cephalotus follicularis a lot, as I ordered one from Tony a few days ago. It seems that they'd be fine in a highland tank, according to some sources, even EXCELLENT![I] I just want to make sure, because this really is a remarkable plant, and I don't want to loose it. THANKS A MILLION! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I forget to say that the tank will/ does have:
    N. rajah
    N. ventricosa
    N. x 'Judith Finn'

    Also it goes down to right around 55*F at night. Thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]

    Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] That's what I was thinking, too, since they enjoy high humidity at night.

    Sounds like good conditions for a ceph! Good luck!

    make sure there's some air flow in there because they're prone to leaf rot.

    humidity doesn't seem all that critical to this plant. I keep mine in diffused light in my living room w/ ceiling skylight.

    Hey leo, are the traps on your ceph pretty large? I've heard that low humidity causes the ceph to produce smaller traps, but if that's not the case i'd definitely like to keep it safer from mold...

    The lid on my tank is around 60 or 70% covered, the rest is screen. Is that good enough ventilation, or should I buy a fan?
    Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]
