    What is this? Cephalotus ball?

    I was messing around with one of my cephs, looking for new growth, kinda scraping some crud off the side of the stalk when this popped out. I believe it's part of the plant. Did this ceph just make a gemmae lol?

    Help picking out a greenhouse

    My fellow growers, I am thinking of getting a small greenhouse to house a small part of my collection. This is not be a tropical greenhouse. It will house some of my prized sarrs, cephs, sundews and whatnot. Tropical plants will come back indoors for the winter. I am hoping to keep the climate...

    Concrete Planter?

    Although winter has just started my mind is already on spring projects. One of my goals next year is to grow cephalotus outdoors in full sun. I have been looking for a planter that will hold up to wind, weather, and pests including my 3yo. Black wont do because of fear of overheating the roots...

    Cephalotus stolon cutting

    This may be the single fastest way I have stumbled upon to propagate cephs! I was taking divisions of a few plants about a 45 days ago and noticed this stolon. I noticed it because I accidentally snapped it off. Instead of tossing it out I wrapped it in a bit of lfs and set it aside. I was...

    Hey all, I have a 5 inch or so start of U.nelumbifolia available for trade. It does not have a fully developed photosynthetic stolon, but has two that are starting off strong, but still juvenile. I love this plant, so I'm happy to get more growing out there. I can't figure out how to post a...

    Trade.. misc plants

    I am finalizing my "getting out of the inside CP collection business". I had traded/sold off a bunch of helis, neps, and cephs last year after doing a division to two. I held onto a few small stragglers to grow them out a bit before moving them on. I haven't been tending the humidity on my...

    A Different Ceph ??

    I just recently noticed 6 plants in my collection of cephs that have only 1 rib on the peristome between the front hairy “wing” and each of the lateral ones instead of the usual 2. Has anyone else noticed this in any of their plants? Also have one with 3 ribs on each side of the midrib.

    would this pot work for cephalotus?

    I keep hearing that cephs seem to thrive in selfwatering pots would this one work? and could it be a plastic pot with a wick? Product Details This self-watering pot is the answer to people who do not want to be "slaves" to their plants. The plant is planted in the inner pot and simply keep...

    What's that???

    What the hell is that in my Pinguicula macrophylla pot?? Oh hell no, it can't be !!! It's a cephalotus!!! Last summer several of the cephs in the tank on the shelf below the pings sent up flower spikes (some extending 10-12" above the pings). I tried pollinating them 3 times a day and was...

    Cephs making me wary...

    Hello all, I have been watching my cephs lately, and noticed what I think is a sickliness coming over them, starting with this one: http://minus.com/mb136jWdgFJpra I'm doubtful this is a humidity/temperature issue, as they've been happy with this setup for over 10 months. The humidity ranges...

    "Hola" from Texas

    Hello all, figured it was about time for me to get involved with some other CP lovers! I've got a few cephs, an n. alata, n. sibuyanensis x burkei, two sarracenias, and some Home Depot fly trap rescues. I'll hopefully acquire a heliamphora in the coming months, when it's a little nicer out and I...
