I have been seeing a lot of people post pictures of their Cephalotus and it has really sparked my interest :geek: How hard are these to grow in all honesty? I check my plants daily and have VFT, Drosera, Sarracenia, and a Nepenthes (and cutting) and they are all growing very well. I also grow peppers hydroponically and they are thriving.

I am looking to get one of these soon, what are your opinions of them?

Mine has been pretty easy to care for since I got it. It was actually one of the first plants I started out with in the hobby. It even bounced back very fast after being repotted into a completely different growing medium despite the reputation of die-backs. With all that being said, that could all be different with another plant.

They're pretty easy to grow, but they're all pretty easy to kill :)

Thanks for the insight! I want to buy one or even possibly trade some plants for one :) They look very different compared to anything else and I'd like to give one a shot.
