    If anybody has any doubts about the german giant size, look at these mature plants. Photo Courtesy of Mr. Frank Strzalkowski, (These plants are found in palmengarten, Frankfurt, Germany)

    What a spectacular photo and garden. Never seen so many in one place.

    A few posts up...I can only see one photo...the one with the hand on the pot of cephs. Are there other's I can't see? Or was that a reference to the pic at the top of the page.

    Any way of getting pics of the typical, giant and Julie's giant side by side? Actually if someone can email them to me, I can composite them into one photo adjacent to one another if that would help.

    I will be thrilled if my little babies get as large as 2".

    Thanks for the pics, Gus. Fascinating.

    Actually I was able to download 3 pics so I have put them together. I can't post it yet as I am at work and don't have my AOL anymore and I need to upload it to the server. So I have emailed it to myself at home and will post it later tonite. I couldn't get the pic of the Julie's giant because it was a PICT image and not a .jpg.

    The composite pic is coming...for some reason the pic never got to my home address. Probably because of the continuuing problem of overloaded email box and that preventing mail from being sent or received.

    Dear All:

    The pictures you've seen so far are the product of a lot of time spent looking for them, patience, and good luck. As you may already know photos of cephalotus giants are hard to find in the net. I have others privately sent to me and they are going to be shown in the article. All I want now is a good picture of the hummer's giant and the giant form found in germany side by side "That's my dream come true". Well, actually, it would be to grow them together side by side. "that's my real dream".

    I thought that pic of Hummer's Giant looked familiar that Jeff showed me at NECPS last Saturday... then i come back and see that it's the one already posted here! Anyway, there are more of Jeff's photos, including several of different Cephs, on the NECPS web page.
