    The cephalotus's that I have grown have not required high humidity. RH in my house is on average around 50%. Good airflow decreases the chance of rot taking hold.

    Yes, about 50% is a good amount.

    Hi all:

    Did someone say cephs? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    You can grow them in pure LFS or a mixture of sand 50% and the other 50% a combination of peat, perlite, and chopped LFS. The nicest pitchers are formed when grown under high humidity conditions

    Roots should be humid but not waterlogged. Mild fertilizer (osmocote) 6 pellets per 5 inch pot.

    If plant is waterlogged, root rot attacks and kill the plant. Use trichoderma to prevent this. they love highland conditions

    You want to be careful witht hat much humidity, it may cause crown rot and bring an end to your plant.

    still, the humidity is very high.
    I would consider lowering it.
