    Dark Cephalotus pitcher

    [IMG]http://**************************************/2011/10/cephalotus-dark.jpg[/IMG]
    This is my first Cephalotus ("vigorous" clone), purchased from D. Hastings in early June. At that time it was a small clump of juvenile pitchers, but as you can see, it has gone on to making adult pitchers. (It has made five now) These are coloring up nicely, wouldn't you say?

    I hope this species continues to be as easy to cultivate in the long run as it has been for me so far. The trick (if you can call it that) is to understand its requirements and learn about its natural habitat, then reconstruct it as closely as you can. It appears that the significant drop in night temps is very important. Strong lighting helps as well. Otherwise I have found this an easy plant.

    Thats a beautiful pitcher Whimgrinder. I find cephalotus' to be easy to grow too. I just had a nice red pitcher open today. Thanks for sharing!

    Looks great! I love the shape of the pitcher too. It looks like it's more pointed toward the bottom, while the pitchers on my typical seem a bit more rounded. Thanks for posting the pic!
    Indeed. Most indeededly. Phillip J. Frye

    Great looking pitcher. Do you see much variation within each pitcher? it would be interesting to the deep red pitchers with white strations from the lip to the base of the lids.

    Wow that's a really pretty pitcher, can you take a pic of the whole plant when it's convenient for you? I'd love to see the whole plant

    Beautiful plant! Great pic quality too. I need to give my Ceph a bit more light and see if I can get color like that. You can see mine aren't quite there:http://www.flickr.com/photos/68248217@N04/6257311999/

    As far as ease of cultivation, I agree with you. So far my Ceph has done really well with minimal effort. Like most plants, pretty easy if you follow some basic rules.
    Good growing!
