I went ahead and decided to repot my Cephalotus. The previous grower I had received the plant from had it potted in what seemed to be a mostly peat mixture, which seemed to be suffocating the roots. In addition, because of the density of growing points, a whole bunch of dead foliage had accumulated: which I inferred was only making the powdery mildew problem worse. I picked up a bunch of cheap, plastic cups from target and drilled 12 holes in the bottom. They're Perfect cephalotus pots! After rinsing and trying to remove as much old media as possible, I wrapped the roots delicately in the new media (2:1 lfs sphagnum to perlite), sprayed with a fungicide, and put the plant in its new home. Its in a humidity tent for the time being, to ease the stress. Fingers crossed, and we'll see how it goes!
