    I was watering my plants today and decided to snap a few pics of my Cephalotus follicularis.

    Here is a picture of my Typical.


    Here are some pics of my 'Hummer's Giant'
    This is what the plant looked like when I purchased it.


    It has grown a lot since then. This plant is in the same conditions as my typical, but has a nicer red color to it.
    I also notice that the pitchers are a bit meatier then the typical pitchers.

    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.

    Amazing looking plants Elgecko! Always a pleasure to see them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    How much time has passed since you aquired your Hummer's Giant? I have a young Giant similar to what yours used to look like and I'm wondering how fast yours has been growing.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    LLeopardGGecko,
    I got the plant early summer last year.

    CaRnIvORoUs_FrEaK,
    I grow my cephs in a terrarium, 10 gallon tank. I have 55 watts of light.
    I have an air pump circulating fresh air, and about a 2" opening the length of the tank top.
    Temps average I would guess summer: mid 80's / winter low 70's.
    Humidity: around 50% during the day. Around 75% at night.
