    very nice! though I have a question about seed grown cephs. If you divide them (all devisions have roots and growth points) are they all now just devisions, is 1 still seed grown (how would you know?), or do they all just count as seed grown?

    I'm pretty sure they would still be seedgrown. o.o

    Technically, since the division was from a seed-grown plant, it would obviously have the same genetic origin as the seed; but when purchasing a seed-grown plant, it is understood that it is specifically a plant which has been germinated from seed and nothing less. In that case, you would simply have to trust the grower as to its origin.

    The seeds from the Cephalotus in the photos above were from a friend in Queensland . . .

    It would be a division from a seed grown plant.

    Cool All my cephs

    Hey guys,

    Here are pics of all my cephs. Except the big one...all the others were started by leaf, pitcher or root cuttings. Almost all of them started off directly with adult pitchers after a few leaves...which was pretty amazing to see.

    Main ceph:



    Cephalotus from divisions:

    Ceph2 & 7: Root division placed vertically and a leaf cutting growing beside it.



    Ceph 3: Root division placed horizontally



    Ceph 4: Pitcher pulling



    Ceph 5: Leaf pulling



    cheers,

    varun

    Very nice. So would you say that vertical root cuttings have worked better for you?
    I was recently very pleased to find that my Ceph rhizome, which I repotted just a couple of weeks ago after a sudden dieback and with virtually no roots, has popped out two new growth points and recovered the three that seemed previously to be on the verge of death. It's now making clusters of winter leaves, of which it's only made one or two per season previously. These are rapidly becoming one of my favorite plants.
