Cephalotus Humidity

mad_hatter1312(7)April 23, 2010

I want to buy a Cephalotus, but the majority of care guides that I have read say that it needs 60-80% humidity to live. A few that I saw said that it doesn't matter. So can they be grown as a windowsill plant like a Highland Nepenthes or do they have to be in a terrarium?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

From my experience, humidity doesn't matter at all. I grew mine in summer with~20% humidity and it did fine; you just have to keep the roots moist. Cephalotus come from arid coastal areas of western Australia, so they are naturally adapted to dry conditions.
