    sorry i did not notice it, thanks!! hope i can buy his seeds =D

    Thanks for the sentiments on those little Cephalotus follicularis seedlings. Several of them would fit on my little fingernail. They are so "cute", being so small, yet having pitcher leaves, very similar to adult pitchers, yet not quite.

    You may note from the date on the photo that it was a little more than six years ago that I had this group of little Cephalotus follicularis plants. Two of them are still hanging on, but they are only a little larger than they were then. I certainly need more practice growing seedlings to adults. My one mature plant is still doing quite well, but hasn't bloomed yet.

    - - - - -
    I sowed fifteen of these seed, right after I received them, either September or October of 2004. Twelve germinated right away (one was a weak runt, and perished soon after germination), eleven are together in this two inch pot. I had misplaced the seed pack, but recently located it, so I sowed the remainder of that packet (viability is said to wane quickly as seed ages - beyond a few months), even though none may remain viable, I figured I couldn't lose any more by sowing them now. There were sixty-four more seeds remaining in the packet. I certainly wished I'd sown more of them back in 2004, and I sure hope some of them are still viable.

    My hat's off to Ron (RL7836) for successfully growing his seedlings to mature plants.

    I expect it's more a matter of my need to improve my growing technique, rather than a fault of the plants themselves.
