My cephalotus' new growth seems to just be going brown, I'll link a picture here. Also, the lids are shut for some reason...
My Humidity is over 70%, kept in a greenhouse in the UK at around 8-20 Celsius, depending on the day. At night it reaches around 2 degrees.

Just repotted it into peat and perlite as the seller only had it in peat.

When you repotted the rhizome and roots looked healthy?

I give it a lot of water, not wet though.

There was only a couple short roots which I found quite odd, maybe the seller didn't look after it properly. I didn't have a chance to check the rhizome.

That's probably an indication that it's a fairly recent division, still developing roots of its own. I received one myself last year with no roots at all it was so fresh, but it didn't seem to mind.

I was thinking about that, however the seller said it was not a recent division. I'll just have to see how it goes after the repot.
