It's probably time to start thinking about repotting my Ceph. Its grown great the last couple months. I trimmed off a lot of the immature pitchers to make room for the mature ones and its exploded in growth of mature pitchers.

Thanks of looking

Just a recap. Here what it looked like when I first got 24 Oct. 2011

That's awesome! FTS needs to restock their cephs, I killed the one I originally bought from them :P

Nice plant!

I believe Matt said that their cephs didn't take the heat very well this summer and he has to start them all over, so it could be a little while before they're back in stock.

I hope you have better luck with your next one.

That's correct. The Cephalotus hate greenhouse life here in Oregon. Either that, I don't know how to take care of them very well when it gets warm. We still have some left, but they all look horrible. I love them, but I think FlytrapStore may discontinue selling them due to their more challenging growing requirements.

Its been awhile since I've updated this thread. Since the last update I've re-potted my ceph into a much bigger pot and its growing great. Right now its seems to be growing up, pitchers being stacked on top of each other. I don't have any full shots of it but took a nice picture of one of the freshly opened pitchers. Once Wrestling season is over I'll have more time to take pitcures and maybe using some of those top pitchers as pulling and thin my plant out a little.
