    New Cephalotus

    Hey guys, I just picked up another Cephalotus yesterday and I'm pretty happy with it. Its about the size of a quarter a little bigger.

    Here are some pics:









    I have a smaller ceph that is all green but this one is a lighter color. How long do you guys think it will take for it to mature and start to color up?

    Here's my smaller ceph

    Nice find! I'm not sure how long, but that one pitcher looks like it's close to being a mature one, on your other ceph.

    Thanks I can't wait for it to mature though.

    P.S. Does anyone know why the new ceph I got is a lighter color then the smaller ceph I have?

    When I first got my Cephs they had the same yellowish tinge to them like yours does. The plants were tissue cultured plants hardened off in the greenhouse and came from a reputable grower so I know the stock was healthy. Once the plants acclimatised to my conditions all new growth is now green. Just give them some time and I'm sure they'll come around.

    As to why they grow "yellowish" I don't know. As long as your Ceph is growing and not exhibiting any negative aspects I would just give it time and let it adjust to your conditions.
