    A new Cephalotus clone on the block...

    As the auction linked to below has finished , I don't think this thread breaks the forum rules. However, if it does, then I apologise and understand if it is removed. For information, I am not the seller.

    There's a new Cephalotus clone on the block...

    Ya know, I don't get the hype behind some of these "extra dark" clones. My typical turns that color in strong light all the time. This is a nice plant, no doubt, but I'm just sayin....

    I agree, that Cephalotus takes on more colour under certain conditions. I find that the darker colouration occurs when the temperatures drop, such as in the cooler autumn/winter months. However, some clones get darker than others and some seem to take on colouration much more readily. My Tank Ceph 2, for example, takes on much better colouration than either my Hummer's Giant or Big Boy under the same growing conditions.

    I agree as well. I have a few which are actually even darker than the one in the photo, so dark that I can't help but wonder if it's dead and check it up close again and again. I don't know why they get so dark but not all of them do even though they're side by side.
    I'll take a photo tomorrow.

    Also I think it depends on the way you take the picture.
    My ceph can shown simliar if not darker colouration that clone, also with bigger pitchers
    But without a clone name, its won't worth much.

    Yes, but you could give it a clone name, then it'll be worth more

    At the end of the day, buyers will pay what they believe it's worth to them and colouration of Cephalotus seems to have a big influence on that.

    Wow thats an interesting clone! Sure went for a lot of money... It looks like a eden black clone that was spray painted with a purplish color.


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