    Big Bella, please stop, really stop. No need more...

    In CPUK you call this plant Cephalotus "Double Ribbed"

    On eBay you call the same plant Cephalotus 'Dudley Watts'

    Here in Terraforums you call again the same plant cephalotus "Giant" http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...Stratification


    Please, make a final decision and choose just one name.... don't really want to see the same plant labeled from you as "Big Boy" somewhere else
    ...I can hear a blue bird sing, and hear a robin call but yellow, yellow daffodil I love you most of all.

    Never had the "Big Boy" perform much for me; sort of a let down really. Dudley Watts was a "giant" Cephalotus in my estimation, with most of its pitchers over 6 cm at maturity. This is a US site; and, at that time, the name, Dudley Watts, meant something only to a very small handful of people.

    Hell, I recently had to explain to someone who was born in the oughts, who Adrian Slack is or was. You're a frustrated hobbyist; get a ******ing grip . . .

    Sadly, I had the plant for just over a year; and it seemed more prone to fungal issues than its neighbors. It succumbed and I never replaced it . . .

    With that account I have to doubt that you had one.

    I don't know; but I received it from a respected grower in New England, whose veracity I never doubted. Plants die; what are you going' to do?

    Wow, it's the Algonquin Round Table revisited! Keep in mind that the plant was never marketed and that that trait was -- again -- temporary in the long run. The sites were and are for hobbyists; personality deficients; and shut-ins; and I wasn't submitting a paper for peer review. Most of my Cephalotus came from that aforementioned grower; that, or the late lamented Dennis Hastings, who was beyond reproach . . .
