    It looks like a healthy plant to me. However we have no way of drawing any conclusions about its growth rate from one picture alone.

    If you don't mind me asking did you get yours from Dean Cook? (looks like it from the soil/pot). I got one from him too in december and its growing alot and pitchering. (posted a topic about it a few days ago). I think he told me grow it with pretty high humidity, almost dry soil, and bright light, which I tried and now its working. How How much did you water it?
    Like rocklizard said, it does look healthy... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    looks good. but it also looks like it needs:

    1. faster draining soil
    2. wetter soil
    3. a bigger pot

    huh? wetter soil? I think cephs like it pretty dry. Is the soil just barely damp? If so then that is good.

    Yea, but look at the pot. The soil is so dry its compressing (you can see to the bottom of the pot almost, on the sides)
    I water mine every day, but they dont sit in a tray :0 Its also in a 8 inch pot.

    at first, cephalotus dont put out pitchers but later on in the growing season, the tips of the leaves will swell up and pitchers will form
    hope that helps,

    I believe that you are thinking of nepenthes. Cephalotus leaves and pitchers are two totally different things... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
