    C. "Big Boy" vs C. 'Hummer's Giant' Pictures

    Here's a comparison between a Cephalotus "Big Boy" and C. 'Hummer's Giant' pitcher. Ignore the colouration, as they are grown in different lighting conditions...

    Ahhhh ...

    Other than the coloration difference that I am to ignore, I can see no difference.

    Pretty Cephs, though!

    Yeah I'm with Lil Stinkpot - other than the HG does indeed have a wider midrib and *maybe* bigger teeth/rim. They're very nice pitchers though for sure!

    They look almost identicle to me, just that the hummers seems to have a slightly bigger rib thing in the middle and "wider teeth" ...So I guess what Thez said.

    Very nice plants. Healthy looking pitchers. They could almost be twins, but with one having a thicker rim.

    Very beautiful plants! Maybe it's an illusion from the camera angle, but the biggest difference I can see is in the shapes of the lids.
