    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    There are a lot of good tips on the Web about growing Cephalotus. Here is one example

    Sorry Im late, I didnt notice ths thread before.

    Cephalotus follicularis comes from west australia, around albany, one of its common names is therefore albany pitcher.
    They can be quite picky, and they like medium-high humidity and cool nights.
    That is why a window is ideal, because of a temeprature drop.
    I grow mine under s plastic bottle with ahole in it for Summer and I remove the bottle for winter.
    The tray should only be reffiled after it has evaporated, after this, it is best to wait a few more days before reffiling the tray.
    I dont reccomend spraying, because if too much water gets into the crown of the plant it will rot away.
    They will grow in pure spaghnum, or a a peat spaghnum perlite mix.
    They should ideally be in a wide and quite deep pot, so they can get nice and big. If the pot is too shallow, there is a risk of them rotting away.
    They will make nice big clumps over time if they have enough room, these clumps can be divided.
    I hope this helps!

    Compost-40% milled lf sphag, 40% perlite, 10% sand, 10% peat.
    Grow using the tray method, but when the tray goes dry let it stay that way for a few days before filling. It seems to appreciate that.
    Excellent candidate under shoplight or other growlights.
    Anyway, that is what works for me.

    Cheers,

    Joe
