    Cephs for Cephs

    Hi All - A few years ago, I was lucky to win a set of Ceph leaf-pullings in a giveaway on here. I actually succeeded in getting some of them to root and grow well. I now find myself with a spare "Big Boy" and a spare "Vigorous". (They can - more or less - be seen through the tags below). I'm...

    They told me not to grow it this way...

    Well, apropos of a recent thread, I decided to start a new one here that is on-topic, of that off-topic discussion :jester: When I was first starting out, in all the instructions I found, the proverbial 'they' described a certain potting medium, certain humidity, a grow setup, which plants...

    Cephalotus Phil Mann

    I've had this clone for many years, it came from a TF member that will remain nameless to protect them from gimmie/gimmie spam, I'm not 100% sure of the TF member but I believe I recall the correct person, it was one of the first few Cephs I'd acquired and did not realize the importance of...

    Ceph with coffee

    I have long wondered if cephs would be compatible with coffee as a fertilizer (not trying to restart the old argument just something for fun). So I decided to give it a go with the few cephs I have. The first one has had a good increase in speed of growth and the second made a much larger...
