Cephalotus vertical growing

Recommended Posts

Found that runner hidden in the pots recently. The plant seems to form very nice natural vertical growing clumps at the bottom of the net pot...

Hello Dimitar,

very interesting kind of growth,but how can you separate the runner (in case you want to) from the motherplant without leaving the roots in the basket? Or do these also grow out of the pot,together with the rhizome or do you have to root the latter separately?

Cool! I remember someone else on this forum also found a ceph growing on the side when he repotted it... Can't remember who it was now....

Hi Sonja

it seems impossible to separate the runner and I found and others close to those. Last year one of my Hummer Giant had runner that I separated and it was the fastes established newly plant that I have ever had. I'm still not sure what the runner itself is but I can say with certain that the runner has no roots but rooted easily...

Inspired by others, I have been growing a cephalotus on a slope as well. It is still alive, but it doesnt do much. Hopefully it will grow larger this summer. I will update with photos later

I've been growing Cephalotus on a xaxim tree fern panel for about a year. So far so good.

The tough part was to insert the roots into the panel. It is quite dense.

And here they are now. The first plant is showing good signs of vertical growth: the last open pitcher is the top one, and the surrounding leaves are recent too.

Yes, it is grown in a highland terrarium. The xaxim is positioned vertically – a straight wall. I manually spray water onto it, and I also use a very basic drip system to irrigate it when needed (ie. when I'm away from home).
