Plants grown in full sunlight are smaller than those grown in shade or indirect sunlight, but they have a beautiful red to maroon coloration which is absent on those grown in diffuse light. To get large plants with red coloration, grow the plants in indirect light to obtain large robust plants and then, gradually expose plants to stronger light to develop the dramatic coloration.

When growing Cephalotus under artificial lights start with 1000-1500 foot candles with a 12-16 hour day.
