    Doomsday's Pictures and Videos

    Hey, I figured I'd make a pic/vid thread to keep all of my stuff, and track the progress of my plants' and my collection.

    As of right now, I'm still in the start-up stage again (I used to grow cp's but took a couple year hiatus for a number of reasons), but I'm working hard on having a decent collection going by the spring/summer.

    Here's my CP shelf right now:

    Installed a DIY humidifier->fogger, and put live sphagnum in the Cephalotus pot around the rootball, and on the top layer.

    Are you using one of those decorative mini foggers?

    No, I looked into some cheap ultrasonic foggers you could put in a cup of water or something, but they don't really have consistent reviews, aside from breaking relatively quickly. They also don't cut off when the water level is too low, which I know will lead to mine breaking quickly. What I did, was buy a nice sized ultrasonic humidfier (not the hot one), and some silicone waterproof sealant, and rigged up the opening to some silicone tubing, so i can aim the fog anywhere I want. In the video, I only have it on setting . For now, level three is overkill, but when the shelf fills up, I'm going to split that tube up into two or three, and cover the whole thing. Your post a few weeks ago actually got me interested in foggers again.

    Your cephs are amazing. If you don't mind me asking, how do you care for them?

    Thanks, man! I appreciate it. I picked this typical ceph up at ICPS 2012, and had it in the small pot it came in (probably 2" or less wide and maybe 4" tall), until I just repotted it this year. I took all of the media it was originally growing in, which looked like peat with a tiny bit of perlite and a decent amount of sand, and put it in the middle of the new pot. I also took 6 juvenile pitcher pullings which started to strike a week or so ago. Then, I surrounded the rootmass with live sphagnum all around and on top. This allowed the transplant to be completed without the plant ever skipping a beat. In fact, it is now growing several mature pitchers for the first time in years, and at a pretty fast rate. I spray it with water on the moss until a few drops start coming out of the bottom of the pot, and every few days, I pour water on it (top water), and make sure it gets on the rootmass. Wetting the plant hasn't caused any problems, but it always has open air to dry it out, so it doesn't have much time to rot. I'm currently working on trading for new ceph clones, since it's one of my favorite cp's, by far.

    What do you mean by "wetting" the plant. Do you soak them at all? If you don't soak them, how much do you allow the soil to dry out? Thanks for answering my questions.
