    i do feed and fert my plants. inconsistantly. I dont think it would hurt to give them alittle more during their seed production. I put cichlid pellets in the pitchers. use orchid ferts for the roots. really cant tell if it has made a huge difference. I guess with I have seed to spare i will torture a few to see if it makes a difference.

    Nice!

    I would find something really nice to cross with that 'Squat' there If you had a traceable Hummer's Giant I think that could make the most interesting cross.

    Lots of options, good luck and keep us informed.

Am I the only one who has observed this effect?
    Many report this on Cephalotus and Heliamphora. However, I do not see this. If you feed the Cephalotus or Heliamphora heavily all year round, flowering or not, the plant pitchers and grows. The plant is starved for nutrients after flowering, and if a supply of food is given, there is no cessation of growth. Of course, if you grow your plants outside, there is also the seasons and lighting issues to take into consideration.
