I too have been keeping my Cephalotus in full sun for the afternoon, but I
cover its pot with a capped plastic water bottle (minus the bottom). Its
growth had been slow before I provided it with the higher humidity, and I
noticed the lids are now kept wide open. Mine is getting ready to bloom and
I'm hoping to get some seed this year.
