    Of course, there is no mention of growing conditions. Anyone who is SOMEONE in the ceph world, knows whose plants these are and the growing conditions.

    Premise: LED lighting induces dark coloration on cephalotus plants.
    Conclusion: Dark cephalotus are grown under LED lighting.
    Your inductive reasoning is flawless.

    Huh,
    I feel like we are splitting hairs here.

    He did say "most" names have appeared over night. Your big boy clone is well documented, but most of the clone names have recently appeared. And finding any info on them about their specific straits are very hard. Most are dead ends.

    I don't grow Eden black. And I agree with the statement that light is a huge contributing factor for color. But from what I have gathered from cpuk is that Eden black has a general tendency to be darker than other clones grown in the same condition. Not the black pics that we see, but slightly darker than other cephalotus plants.

    RSS, are u trying to say that my Cephalotus Northcliffe is grown under LED light and the color is achieved in this way?

    If so, I have to correct you for the third time - no under normal greenhouse conditions in Europe with the old sun.

The 'Eden Black' X seeds I have are mid to bad for coloration and are showing no special traits yet. If you dig around a lot there are a handful of possibly special plants coming out from these seeds.
    Yes, I concur: Eden black is a dark clone and the world is flat.

    With 'Eden Black' we have http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cul...ltivar_web.pdf, figure 2 showing different clones growing in similar conditions with a wide range of colorations. Basically what we need for every "black/purple/special" claim.

    With this new dark clone only being 3+ years old (I believe that is what I read earlier) it will be a long time before enough info is gathered.

    Perhaps one of the most interesting Eden crosses out there imo. http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index...howtopic=51153

    I'd love to get my hands on that one!
    Well, sorry to inform you but bananito is not going to be with you soon. The few who have it, you just pissed off.
