    No Cephalotus seeds - BUT!!!!

    Pollinated 3 different times a day on 5 spikes full of flowers for weeks and not a single one took. Looked again today and what do I see?? A pitcher up near the top of one of the flower spikes.

    Wow that is interesting. I wonder if that could strike to a new plant too.

    No growth point visible. It's 1/2" tall now. I am going to let it grow as long as the spike will permit and when/if that goes I'll try to treat as a cutting.
