    DavyJones,

    I've heard anecdotal reports of this.

    You may want to try watering only half of your plants with coffee, and the other half treat as you normally would. This would better enable you...

    Matt,

    I'm not sure what bog we'll be visiting, that's up to Mike & Richard to decide. They'll probably pay a visit to a few bogs and decide which is most accessible. We have had a very cloudy and...

    So long as you didn't manhandle it when repotting, it should be fine.

    Cephalotus often "sulk" for a while after being repotted and much topgrowth can die. This can be minimized by avoiding root...

    I grow mine in 1:1 peat:coarse silica sand.

    I allow moss (Sphagnum sp. and others) to grow on the surface as it helps prevent algae and slime from establishing themselves.

    Spray with tebuconazole which can be bought at the Home Depot or Lowe's.

    In the future, you can avoid moldy seed by lightly spraying them with a fungicide before stratifying them.

    Ant,

    You got those seeds from me at the NECPS Show. They're from a friend's parents' property and produce VERY dark-maroon pitchers in the late summer/fall and also have a wide ala. They're very...

    You can grow any plant in any conditions you wish.

    The crux is: what conditions are best? I can think of many ways I'd rather grow a Ceph than "jam jarring" it.

    I'm sure it's possible and...

    Those were my thoughts exactly. I keep the medium constantly moist but not soaking wet.

    Many of my plants are juvenile so I repot them every 2-3 years, as needed.
