    Dear all:

    This is a large ceph clone. Notice that the plant has been grown in small containers. The theory behind it is that if you grow a plant in a small containers, the roots get cramped up that the pitcher size increases. Myth or Reality!.

    Anyway, you'll be the judge of that. The pitchers are roughly 1 3/4 inches. I forgot to put a ruler sorry.

    Nice picture ;>

    I am going to say Myth on the root bound theory. I do think that depth of pot is important however to accomidate the long thick 'tap root'.

    I agree with the tall pot idea. My Cephs do better in narrow, deep pots than in wide, shallow pots. I think that's also why Cephs often do poorly when grown in a pan of water. That high water table restricts the roots.

    By the way, if I saw that photo in another CP forum, I'd think it shows mastery of Photoshop rather than Ceph cultivation. But that wouldn't happen here [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img].

    You mean you doubt that's a real photo!. Do you want to see another one?. Please let me know. Don't forget that if anybody wants to alter a photo they'll go for pitcher size!, which in my case, it is the real size.

    I think what can be deceiving is there is no way to tell one.. how big the finger is and two if it's placement to the pitcher. Not that it matters because Gus did say the pitcher was approximately 1 3/4" inches.

    BTW EC.. that yellow print is nearly impossible to read

    I think it's a real pic , cephalotus pitcher averages to 2 inches when grown well and that plant has been grown very well from the pic and i've seen bigger pitchers before . [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
