My cephalotus plants

Recommended Posts

So I always say how good others photos are etc it's my turn to share.

All my cephs are in different mixes, peat&spag moss, coir, peat and perlite, pure coir etc - why I'm just seeing how they react.

So over the past year and some I have been snapping at my cephalotus plants owned an tendered by my fair hands.

Some are bad quality, some better some taken at night an a dead pitcher along the way. None are recent so all at different stages throughout the year.

So I think I will start with the above.

I will update this thread time to time, but most of the pictures will be available to view by the weekend

Jaquise - keep it going!! Your a great grower yourself.

Mr green - I found time an patience to be best. To speak with the great contributors of the forum most are ceph growers I also went outside the box an spoke to growers in the uk went to people's open days an went on some visits, I also spoke with American growers really friendly people who help if you ask them questions. I don't want to name names but I found the forum an part of the carnivorus plant society uk to be a great help

Hi,

Some lovely plants there!

What have you found from your experimentation with different growing media? Is there a mix that seems to work best or do the Cephs seem to cope with various mixes and just get on with it?

Cheers,

Steve

Thanks steve

At a the moment, I like spag moss an coir seems to be using good nutrients in plants as I havnt fed them a lot if at all. The water retention seems to be fair not gluey at all

Over time I would like to see what happens though

Hi Matthew, good to see your collection after talking about it at the Chester zoo visit last year. Lovely looking collection. Going to be back down Chester at some point this year.been away from the forum for quite a while now, had some health issues but feeling a lot better now and looking forward to the coming season.
