Tannerm thanks for entering, I might put a plant up for sale soon but it will be a typical. Unfortunately nothing able to giveaway just yet but I'll put another one up when it becomes available.

Plant arrived today in good condition. Wonderful packing job!

Couple of quick questions: I want to minimize acclimation shock.

Medium looks like 100% coarse silica sand or aquarium substrate, is it?
Do you top water or tray water?
How often do you MaxSea feed? (1/4 tsp /gallon?)
What sort of light is it used to?

Thanks for the giveaway!
Good growing,
Mike

Although this isn't my plant I grow a lot of cephs, and I fertilize them about once or twice a month

Thank you, medium is 1:1 peat/silica sand (med grade) dressing is coarse silica sand ontop. I top water maybe 1 time a month to clean plant. I have a bucket I fill water up with to the same level as the top dressing and let sit for 5-10mins then place back into its tray where I keep water at 1/4 the size of the pot. I am still experimenting with maxsea so I can't for sure say what I'm using is good yet.

Here's an update on this giveaway. It's been about a month and a half.

I won this Cephalotus and my plant arrived on July 28th.

I put it outside in a sheltered location. It got bright light, but not much direct sunlight. It is growing nicely. It seems to like my growing conditions.

Here are a couple pictures I took today. Sorry about the mediocre quality.

New growth is healthy and each new pitcher is larger than the previous one/

Notice how wide the frontal ridge is on the latest pitcher.

Thanks again to Nauz for a great giveaway!


Good growing,
Mike

Can't wait for that new pitcher to inflate. Other then that the plant looks really healthy. I've got a hummers giant outside on patio that gets about 6 hours of direct sunlight and doesn't grow that fast.

When my Ceph from Nauz is big enough, I will definitely propagate it from a cutting and run my own Cephalotus giveaway. For now, I'm paying it forward by sponsoring seed giveaways. Currently, I have a Drosera capensis "Wide Leaf" free seed giveaway going on. Next week I will be starting a Drosera intermedia free seed giveaway.

Good growing,
Mike
