Me too.But I can't grow them succesfully.....Except for ceph.Is it a non-carnivorous leaf on the ceph?When do they produce them?

Hi Marvin,

Some say that the non-carnivorous leaves of cephs aid the plants if they are not getting enough food from their pitchers. Makes sense to help the plant process photosynthesis.

Yey, yup. Love this guys. I just got 3 strikes from the ceph leaf pulling. I hope my TC'd ones strikes too! The Helis are forming clumps like crazy. Around 4 division on 1 plant. I have to re-do my set up. Want to try on LED lighting to minimize the heat. I am currently running 2 T5s on a 30 gallong terrarium.

Hey HB, how's it going? Congrats on the leaf pulling strikes! How's the TC leaf (Ceph) doing? :D

Thanks PM, everything is doing great. Just growing the VFTs ex-vitro now. Also got a strike on the Shark's teeth. The ceph did not do anything, wrong media but it was too late when I realized. I will try again when I get some leaves. Right now, my cephs are just making pitchers.
