    Me too, but it also looks like that could just be a top dressing.

    Nice. The coloration is definitely interesting. Is it kind of metallic or diffractive in person?

    I agree with everyone else. That's a great looking Cephalotus!

    Yours looks very awesome and well grown. Keep us updated with more pics.
    I've never actually counted them but I observe a new cluster forming on the outside every now and then.

    The media is 2 parts dried New Zealand moss, 1 part perlite, 1 part peat, 1 part sharp sand and a very small amount of wood charcoal. All measurements are approximate as I tend to make mixed by feel and appearance rather than quantity. I top water newly potted plants to try to wash some of the media around the roots and this leads to the smaller particles being washed through from the surface so the peat and sand is not very visible.

    The pitchers were wet when I took the picture as I had just sprayed off some of the potting mix.

    I guess I was more referring to the way that the red/yellow hues on the pitcher sides seems to vary with the camera angle. Maybe it's the flash/lighting I'm seeing. Regardless, very neat. You usually see these in pictures with just one plant so I suppose it's easy to forget how much variation there is just among unnamed specimens.
