    I use the "Charles Brewer" mix which I make up in a gallon ziplock bag. A few days before transplant, I take some (a spoonful or so) of the soil from the Ceph's current pot and mix it in with the new to 'innoculate' the new soil. That's something John Phillip taught me about.

    I wish I could grow mine outside here. Right now my cephs grow in a very humid terrarium and do not ever stand in water.

    Charles Brewer Mix:
    "An open mixture comprising by volume:
    45% dried spagnum moss
    45% medium perlite
    8% peat/sand mixture
    2% wood charcoal
    More sand/peat can be added and doesn't cause problems."

    Hi, plants pictured before mine are very nice and beat mine hands down. HEHE, mine was given to my by PlantAKiss a few months back and has since became 3 plants... It grows in my green house in a mixture of 50/50 peat/sand and seams to be happy.


    Hope you enjoyed.
