    Cephalotus Projects - Tanks & Planters!

    Ten Gallon Tank Build:
    Last June I started a 10 gallon ceph tank, all from cuttings, pullings, or divisions. All survived and the surface now has a nice covering of moss.

    Media consists of 1:1:1 peat : perlite : sand

    Here are some progress pics.

    Very cool, it looks like they all filled out nicely. Have you considered adding the other Australian carnivorous plants found growing alongside cephalotus?

    Thanks and I have actually. I'm building an even bigger tank soon for the home display that will have different labeled forms and other native plants. This current 10gal display was built to take yearly as show and tell for my wife's kindergarten class

    I like your scaping, especially that little water area there. Do you have a drainage layer on the bottom or is it the same media straight through?

    There's a drainage layer. Just pvc, diffuser grid, and weed cloth

    I still have to fill in the "pond" area with sand. Will need to weed out the ferns growing there first.

    I don't have any first-hand experience with cephs (yet), but that looks like great growth over a 6-month period! I also really like the "terrain" effect. Nicely done!
