    Unhappy

    Well, a friend of mine brought it to my attention that the lids on my Ceph seem to be a bit odd. What do you all think of this? I'm not too worried, since the plant is doing so well.



    thanks,

    Homer

    I htink it means that humidity is too high.
    Ideally, they should be nice and firm and just hanging over the pitcher, not inverted.
    If they are loose and droop compltely tot he point where they are touching or nearly touching the lip, then humidity is too low.

    Well, I think Starman is partly right...I think it means the humidity is high...Though I wouldn't go so far as to say too high unless you start to see fungus or mold. The plant looks very happy & healthy, so I would continue doing whatever it is you are doing (or not doing, as the case may be).

    Exclamation

    Humidity too high? Oh my, what a picky plant. The RH hovers around 50% on average.

    My cephalotus is in similar conditions to Homer's. RH 40%-50%. My cephalotus does not have have inverted lids. I was the one who pointed out to Homer originally that his was a bit different, in terms of the inverted lids. I have seen a similar picture from someone else, but I can not remember who.
