    Hard to say, but I think it is suspicious that the first true leaf is a blade, not a pitcher. All of my Cephalotus produced a pitcher immediately after the cotyledons.

    I've tried comparing to pics online and theleaves look the same to me. I am just trying to get outside opinions.

    Having just ID'ed several Ceph seedlings (forgot that I sowed the seeds a year ago ), I'd say you have a cephling coming up. The next "leaf" looks pretty bulbous and reminds me of the first pitchers I saw after one leaf was produced.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Ive had them produce leaves first, but as Paul says usually its pitcher first after the cotyledons.

    See the top seedling.
