So, when I first started learning about CPs, I figured I wouldn't want to get a Cephalotus - as spectacular as they are - because they're so durned expensive, hard to find and (I had read) fussy. But recently I've been thinking about importing one, since they run a lot less overseas. Then today, I saw on wistuba.com a warning that they're shipping Cephs out of Europe at buyer's risk because, apparently, the strain of a phytosanitary check is too much for some plants.
Does anyone know about this? It seems that the Cephalotus is finicky about being washed out of its growing medium (according to wistuba.com.) Has anybody out there found this to be true? Just before I saw that notice, I was reading about Cephs in the Savage Garden, which seems to make light of dividing and taking root cuttings. Root cuttings and rhizome division certainly entail removing the plant from it's medium... so what's the deal?
