    Great looking plant. the name makes me think of "Site B" in the Jurassic Park books. Not quite as fancy as the first one but just as deadly.

    Nice looking little guy. There seems to be plenty of potential in that one.

    It must be something in your water!

    Your baby ceph in beach sand (which you transformed from light green to black) & your Ceph "Big Boy" - - - as well as this small relative of C. 'Eden Black' - - - all are amazingly dark colored.

    Congratulations on some great growing ...

    It's just down to lighting I think. Both C. "Tank Ceph 2" and my dune sand seedling grow under LED lighting. I recently changed the lighting on my dune sand plant and it hasn't liked the change, with some of the pitchers dying. The C. "Big Boy" was growing very close to fluorescent lights, this resulted in good colouration but slow pitchering. I have subsequently moved C. "Big Boy" to a windowsill, where it has rapidly put out new pitchers but with significantly less colouration. The best balance of lighting seems to be with my C. "Tank Ceph 2", as it has good colouration and pitchers well. This plant is under 6W of daylight LED.

    Approx 6cm from the top of the plant. It is a 30 lamp, so the intensity is quite high, though it's a cheap LED, so not as intense as my Phillips LED bulb of approx the same wattage. LED are not yet really suited to large grow areas but I like to grow 'feature' plants so am willing to spotlight a single plant with a bulb. I have a Heliamphora pulchella in my living room, under a Phillips LED bulb and it is taking on some really nice colouration, just starting to settle in and produce new pitchers.
