    Wolfstriker,

    I don't think you have to increase the pot size yet. It looks like it's filling out nicely in such a short time. I think you are doing a good job with it. It's just young.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Thanks Joe

    Well four months later this is the same Ceph. It had about 4 different crowns. So I divided one off and potted it up separately and then potted this one back up. It seemed to enjoy getting rid of one of its crowns.

    Thanks, it would appear that this is a pretty resilient plant. Outside it goes!
    Jim,
    I grow mine outside all summer here in NJ. While they can handle the sun, they prefer partial shade and grow better there. The ones in the pure sun are dark red and much smaller (& seem more susceptible to croaking).

    From what I understand, they are usually shadowed by grasses in their natural environment.

    Be extremely careful in the transition from inside to outside. I've lost more Cephalotus in that transition than I can count! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    All the best,
    Ron

    Mine never did go outside. It isn't growing fast, but it is growing. It does have a red crown. I took several of the winter leaves and put them in live LFS, about 6 weeks ago. I accidently severed a shoot from the main plant, that I hadn't noticed until I started pulling leaves. That, too went into the live LFS. All leaves / plant are still green, so, I know there is life.
