    Ah, thanks Jeff. I think it looks pretty cool.

    Edit: Actually, I just googled gypsicola and I'm pretty sure that's not it. Unless you meant in it's dormant growth period?

    A friend of mine had a Cephalotus flowering in his windowsill a couple of years ago- he fretted about what to do for a while, then one day decided to chop it off about 3" above the plant itself. The stalk didn't die as he'd anticipated, instead it started producing fully adult pitchers shortly after the snip, and for a while he had a genuine 2-level plant- there's a picture of it online somewheres, it's really goofy looking...

    Just posted this so as to indicate that the stalks themselves seem to have what it takes to make new plants, so I believe your "experiment" should yield results for you

    Thanks for the encouragement . . .

    The incidence of "plantlets" growing along the flower stalks (vegetative apomixis) is unusual but I have seen it most commonly with Dionaea (especially tissue cultured plants) -- and on only one occasion with a large ten year old Cephalotus . . .

    I've seen it on several pygmy sundews in my collection too, was really surprised to see it with the Ceph especially considering the "instant adult pitchers"

    I'll PM you a link to that pic too

    I once had a flower stalk as well. I cut it off and stuck it in substrate. At the Bracht of the flower stalk where those non-carnivorous leaves appear, a pitcher popped up. But I didn't look after it and it died after a while. I think you should yield some interesting results, the challenge will be to keep it alive after that.

    Takes more than that, doesn't it?

    My cuttings take several months to strike...
