    You can smell the jealously in this forum now. Mind if I ask how you grow your plants? It certainly seems to be doing REALLY well.

    Thanks for the comments.

    mluk27 - If you saw them in person, you would definitely see a difference between the two. 'HG' is larger and beefier...

    RL7836 - Thanks. I have seen some pics of 'HG' before with that huge peristome like your has made. Maybe now that mine is finally happy, maybe it will produce some like that. It certainly is putting out the largest ceph pitchers I've ever had.

    mass / Eric_N - 10 gallon terrarium. 1 - 40 watt 67,000K / 10,000K Sunpaq bulb and 1 - 15 watt Flora Sun bulb.

    Basically a 2:1 mix of Turface and peat moss.

    Holy freaking cow. I've been procrastinating potting my Ceph pullings up until I found a media I liked... think I just found it...

    So, 2/1 turface/peat. That makes me happy, 'cause I love turface and want to use it in more stuff, lol. Do you tray them?

    Ridiculous plants, I don't think I've ever seen such... lush (?) Ceph growth. LOL.

    Kyle - Thanks. I do not use the tray method. I water from above. At times it's a little hard when the pots overflowing as the Typicals are.

    A few more pics:

    Here's a closer shot of some of the teeth for Ron.


    mluk27 - Here's a better comparison of pitcher size. Average size of the Typical, one bravely gave it's life for the photo shoot.


    Typical beside the largest 'HG' pitcher that just started to open.


    Lid not fully open yet and larger then a quarter.

    Ron, was looking at your pics again of the 'HG'.
    I'm not sure that a have seen a peristome that big before on a 'HG' or any ceph, I thought I did, but I may be thinking of the way the pitcher seems to be bent more. It appears in the picture it may be more banana shaped?
    Also see that it's a selfed 'HG', which I thought it was a pure 'HG'.
    Maybe you've got a new cultivar if it hold true, Cephalotus 'Fat Lip'
