Cephs putting on some colour this year.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My seed grown Cephalotus are now in their second winter and are colouring up nicely in their temporary terrarium.

The plants in the terrarium,

Plant 1 in natural light,

and plant 2 in natural light,

The colours in the picture of plant 2 look a bit washed out, may have been the angle I took it at, it is actually darker than plant 1 in reality.

Hope you like them.

Best regards,

Ian.

Looking good. Have you got coir in that soil mix?

I have indeed. It's a mix of Canna coco professional, dried sphagnum and perlite in equal parts.

This is the stuff I use,

The one is top dressed with Pure Canna and the other with crushed granite, both seem to keep the moss down, there's just a tiny bit now and then in each pot.

I have to say, I'm not keen on the look of the granite, so may swap that for Canna as well.

Nice plants Ian,

The canna top dressing certainly gives a more naturalistic look to the plant compared to wild specimens.

Cheers,

Steve
