    Cephalotus Phil Mann

    I've had this clone for many years, it came from a TF member that will remain nameless to protect them from gimmie/gimmie spam, I'm not 100% sure of the TF member but I believe I recall the correct person, it was one of the first few Cephs I'd acquired and did not realize the importance of record keeping with Ceph clones due to the difficultly telling one from another, and the horrid naming that surrounds this plant.

    Anyway, I moved it into a 6" pot a year or two ago and I'm getting some nicely different pitchers from this plant.

    Can you see why I think its different

    Very nice, Randall.

    I definitely want to give cephs another go at some point. Been a few years since my last failed attempt. While cephs are easily my favorite amongst all the pitcher type plants, I confess to having great difficulty in seeing much (if any) difference between the various cultivars.

    The base of the pitcher is much wider than any of my other Cephs by a noticable amount. All of my other clones are producing taller pitchers that are smaller in diamater at the bottom. This plant is much more "fat" at the bottom.

    Maybe I'm just going mad with all these Cephs around me, or maybe the photo is just not doing the plant justice.

    If you are really quiet and stay very still you can just make out them talking to each other, fyi they don't like the Lithops.

    I have several different "clones" of cephalotus

    They are all growing side by side and nearly impossible to tell apart

    Looks good Randall,
    The mouth of the trap looks pretty close to the base size as well. It doesn't have as much of a taper as say a "Coal Mine Beach."
