    ah but it makes those "buds" that do take a long time to form pitchers, although they aren't at the end of leaves lol [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Did... They say that they form vegatative (just regular ol leaves) and carnivorous pitchers. Two totally different things [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Ok drosera dude yes i did get it from dean cook. I seen your post and i thought the same about yours cause he uses that same soil. I bought mine in december too! But yours has pitchers on it. I keep mine in the plastic square thing with a lid on it and the soil is moist but i always check the soil and it never seems to dry out probably because its in a sealed container. Spectibilis do you think it needs a bigger pot? Also i was thinking somewhat what Hellz dungeon said that it usually pitchers later in the spring. I also have the Savage garden but it doesnt have a big section on cephalotus.

    Cephalotus like high humidity, that is true. I use the tray method, but I let the tray go empty berore re-filling.
    My soil mix is 40% milled sphagnum, %40 perlite, %10 peat, %10 silica sand. I use grow lights and that works fine.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Yes, I would move up to a larger pot. I have a 1 1/2- 2 inch diameter plant, and its in a 6-7 inch pot [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I used the soil mix form the savage garden (I think)

    You don't need a bigger pot.. Cephs need deep pots but they don't have to be huge in diameter as long as there is some room around the edges for underground runners to emerge.
    What you do need:
    1. Brighter light. It appears the leaves are big and 'floppy'
    2. lots and lots of patience. Cephs can sit there showing no signs of growing for months and months at a time.

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