Anyway, Cephs will also kena scale insects. I have one large plant which started to grow and then it suddenly stopped. I realised that there were pests and I used the systemic pesticide. The plant took a while to start growing again. But last night, I discovered that the scale insects are still around. Sigh...
There are two pests I really dislike: scale insect and mealy bug. And they are related! <roll eyes>
ahaha yeah they are really persistant and seemingly resistant to any pesticide we throw at them... those freakin little buggers.... but ive already checked the one that stopped growing... theres no sign of pests it just decided to stop growing... oh well...
Yanuar, it is funny how my Ceph pot also had a D. burmannii hitchhiker! ;D Btw, your plant looks great and the moss makes the whole pot look really nice. Did you plant the moss or did it appear on the mound by itself?
Alfred, how are your cephs? And your honeymoon? Sorry, I don't understand Berhasa Indonesia except for a few common words. So I can only guess! LOL
Repotting is done by taking out the whole clump of media. But because my mix is peat and sand, it falls apart readily. I just hope the plants will continue for at least another two years before I repot them again. The next time I might need to break the ceramic pots!
Repotting sometimes causes the fine roots to break. The effect is rather immediate. I accidently knocked a pot over and broke some roots. After potting the plant up, the older pitchers closed their lids and started turning limp. Maybe that's why the species hate repotting and being shipped bareroot.
