These are all my seed grown plants, this will be their third summer (3 Years old) and first flowering for most. I had 4 spikes last year, you can get a glimpse of the seedlings in the foreground from last falls harvest.

...yours and Snapperhead's growing methods just confirm my suspicions that these plants should be grown outside. Thanks for that, I'll be treating my mine like my Flytraps from now on. Fantastic looking Cephs by the way!
I would say John's and my conditions would be close to the same yes but I wouldn't say they are extreme, especially in the winter. In the summer they are on the south wall, full sun. Shading on the blazing days. Temps 18c- 35c. Winter they move to the North wall, under lights and ambient sunlight. Temps 10c- 25c

...your germination rates seem very high, do your Ceph seeds receive the same conditions? I'm assuming they do. Sorry for picking your brain Brad but I have been mistreating my Cephs for long enough and now want to grow them successfully. I have learned a few things from my experiments though. On a side note, I would be very interested in any future divisions you may have of your atypical Cephalotus. Nice growing!
