    I don't think there is any lack of interest in cephs...the problem is they are hard to obtain. They are slow growing so you can't propagate them by the tons like D. capensis. Like most slow growing plants, they tend to be expensive for that reason. There are lots of people looking for cephs.

    I have one and it is growing well. I think I have a photo of it posted on Patrick's CP Gallery. It has produced 2 new pitchers and has several baby pitchers starting. It took a loooong time before it stopped producing juvenile pitchers and starting growing the mature ones. I have not had any problems growing it...it is in a tank and since its growing well there, I'm not going to move it! I am trying my first leaf cutting, so we'll see how it goes.

    There have been several discussions regarding cephs which you can find if you do a search on this forum.

    I think they are very cool plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I just have to wait and see if I can grow a heliamphora heterodoxa x minor... those are so beautiful... I think I'll set up a growing area in my basement so things don't get so hot.

    Yep, LOADS more humidity. Just look in Peter D"amatos book to see the growing conditions. Under windowsills, he put "Very doubtful"
