    new ceph hummers giant

    hi everyone i just got my first ceph I was a little Disappointed when I saw the plant I spent quit a bit of money on it and it was very small.

    The cephalotus is smaller then a quarter with about 4 little pitchers smaller then a pencil eraser

    My question is do you think this is a standard size from a nursery? How long until it grows its first mature pitcher? I would post a photo put I donít know how.

    Thank you for your time

    Hummer's Giant isn't all that common, so many people would pay a good price for it. I certainly would :/

    It took me less than an year to get my leaf cutting ceph to make a mature pitcher. see this topic http://terraforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=121406

    I've seen HG's about the size of yours with one adult pitcher just started, go for around $125-$175. So depending on what you paid, it may have been a good deal. These plants are indeed slow growers, though well worth the wait.

    I bought a Hummer's Giant with 3 or 4 juvenile pitcher a couple of years ago. It has been putting out adult pitchers for the last year or so and I have struck 7 or 8 leaf cuttings from it.

    I paid £6 ($9) for mine. I wish it was easier to sent plants to the USA from here... I could make a fortune

    I don't have Hummer's Giant, but cephs just require a bit of patience when they are immature. Give 'er some time, and you'll be rewarded for your waiting. They are worth it.

    Hi all I just noticed that tree small pitchers have started to turn light brown. Is this normal?
