    I think that is a lie. The picture of the Cephalotus plant looks zoomed in with a camera lens then "put" next to the guy. If it is real I would have to see another picture. It just doesn't look real to me. It is immposible to get a Ceph that big anyway. It is just physically and genetially impossible! If it is real I would have to see another poicture though. I am not convinced. That picture though is neat and if it is real WHOO!!! That is incredible!

    Or check out this drosera capensis 'Chernobyl Giant':

    Pretty funny pictures! LOL. So basically that Cephalotus and these photos are fake like I said before right?

    Ya those are fakes, and pretty bad one's at that. I have done alot of photo editing in my past, the ceph is a cheap camera trick I learned when I was 9. The guy is sitting about 8 feet behind the plant while the camera man tells him how to position himself so that the plant looks huge and the same distance as the man. I used to do it with my cousins and babies. OH MY GOD ITS A 50 FOOT BABY!!!! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!! lol. Sorryo to dash anyones giant Ceph fantasies. It can't happen, not like that. The best you can ever hope for is a 3-4 incher, and that's pretty rare.
