    2015 Cephalotus Flower watch

    I was hoping to see photos of other peoples cephalotus flowering this year. Please share your plants and updates throughout this season! Always exciting to see what others are doing.

    I took a sick day today and was able to mosey out to the greenhouse to snap a few photos of some flower stalks. Looking forward to what I can produce this year.

    While packing up a NASC auction today I noticed my first ever Ceph stalk! Now what triggered it?

    Guess which plant has the stalk! They are in the same watering tray, in the same windowsill, on the same row, and the same clone. It is really true that size doesn't matter!

    Hi from Brooklyn!

    Here are a couple of pics of my flowering cephs. The mother plant started out as a Hummer's crown division I bought from an Alaskan grower maybe 5-6 yrs ago. It flowered last year ('14). This past Fall, took three small root divisions when I re-potted. It looks like the mother plant will have two flower stalks this year, and one of the divisions is sending one up as well! And oh yeah.. anyone know if that's a hybrid non-carnivorous/pitcher leaf growing out of one of the stalks?

    Thanks! Tony

    I was making life harder than it needed to be. Every morning and afternoon I tease each flower with my paintbrush. Looks like it may be a time wasted. Nature has its own way of taking care of itself...

    Finally getting some flowers to open up, going to let nature take its coarse and see if I get seeds or not.
