    Nice!! Looks like another version of cephalotus "fuzzykins"


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I'm blown away by the color of this thing. Mind if I ask it's origin? I know I won't be able to get my paws on one from this side of the pond.. just wondering.

    Mine is the "vigorous" clone (provenance: D. Hastings), which is just an average selection with (possibly) faster growth than the standard, and it gets excellent color in natural sunlight:

    It darkened considerably since this photo; I need to take a new one to illustrate. My soil mix is 40% peat, 40% coarse builders sand (crushed quartz), 10% fine fir bark and 10% horticultural charcoal. Otherwise it gets nothing special except clean water and as much sun as it wants.

    I suspect that it's growing in a greenhouse. Cephalotus take on lovely colouration in the winter months if kept in a cool greenhouse.

    Not sure its orgin, got it on ebay sometime ago
    Its grown indoor with grow-light to keep the light level high!

    I got another smaller plant that shown similar colouration,
    but this 1 has always been red even with low light level.
