Ultimately it died to some mismanagement on my part. I kept having to change its home breaking the...

    Cephalotus: A detailed look

    I used some self closing tweezers to hold the ceph. THis allowed me to make adjustments to both the microscope focus and the camera focus. I adjusted the light with a lamp and the built in microscope lighting.

    Tough Leaves Growing on Moss in Red Bug Pot?

    They are not a problem. Yes you are very lucky :). As liverworts are among my favorite. You will find them co-occuring with CPs in their native habitat. Chances are you just got some spores that germinated in your substrate to give you those liverworts.
