Cephalotus follicularis emu point giant
I am really looking for my first cephalotus and have found several for sale around the net. I found this one on a site and was wondering if anyone has any experence with this clone. The site says that it is an unregistered clone with pitcher size up to 3 inches. Anyone else have this clone?
I'd be very interested to know who is talking about this clone.
I don't think it's a registered cultivar nor am I sure of it's "Giant" status. I think it's just a Cephalotus with locale data. It's a fairly common form. Maybe someone here with an adult specimen can chime in with a pic.
It's actually just a Hummer's Giant with location data (Emu Point, Albany, Western Australia).
This kid usually has them in stock.

Reason: Vendor information.
It is a plant grown from seed by bigbella on the forums here if memory serves me right... might wanna PM him. It's just a bigish plant with location data. It has nothing to do with 'Hummer's Giant' though.
My memory is a little choppy. Must be thinking of what I read about Czech Giant being a Hummer's from the Czech republic.
But as it pertains to Emu Point,
"This plant was seed grown from a mother plant originating in the Emu point region of southern Australia. It has been said the parent plant produced pitchers as large as three inches. Since this has been seed grown, there in no way to emphatically state this plant will grow up to be a giant also."
Still searching for the Emu Pt. thread..
"Hummer's Giant" is a cultivar developed in the 80's by John Hummer. They also get slightly larger than the Emu Point Cephs.
