    I just want to clarify one thing. This is NOT the original "fuzzykins" cultivar and nothing I see here makes me believe otherwise. Although it does share some obvious fuzzykins traits, the original strain is not in mainstream cultivation. Anyone who knows anything about Cephalotus would know that the original grower of C. follicularis "fuzzykins" created the cultivar in pre-cambrian times and there's no way that any North American growers actually have access to the original clone.

    Nice try, although it is an EXTREMELY healthy looking Cephalotus - C. "fuzzykins" it is not. Maybe if the Chinese man himself comes and adds his input I will change my mind.

    The Chinese opium dealer is best friends with the creator of "fuzzykins", so it HAS to be real.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Actually i had a clone sent to me by accident in a shipment of phalaenopsis orchids from Taiwan. At the moment it's in a closely guarded private lab being reporduced.

    I bought a C. "Fuzzikins" on ebay once. Turns out it was just hair in a can sprayed all over the pitchers. Buyer beware!
