    I'm gonna just put mine outside. It shouldn't go dormant since I'm in southern California.

    I wish they didn't cost so much. I have tons of room for plants now and they are so cool looking.

    I bought one in late summer last year. I'm growing it in a terrarium. When I first received the plant it was small and had 2 pitchers on it. The pitchers lasted about 3 days when I got it.
    It has adjusted to my conditions and has doubled in size. It has about 4 pitchers on it now, and several fuzzball ready to inflate into pitchers. I have taken a few leaf cuttings which I hope will reward my with more plants. I would like to try growing them in different locations to see how they do.

    For me, it's they grow great, then they don't! A synopsis of my struggles with this species are on this thread:

    I'd welcome your thoughts!

    I've found Ceph's quite easy to grow. generally I keep them in a greenhouse during the warm months but bring them indoors when the temperature drops. I have a 6"pot which needs re-potting in spring so I may try growing one outside in the garden as well as keeping them in the greenhouse.

    I use a 50/50 peat sand mix and in spring/summer I keep my ceph's sitting in water and Autumn/Winter I water them about Once every week or two.
