    Ok so my cephalotus took some time but i have been noticing a small shoot come out ot the one of the three plants together( it was sold like that). at first i though it was a nother leaf but i noticed the wierd shape to it . so i knew this was a pitcher and it is. but it didnt open yet but its blowing up [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] . then i notice the top of the plant were the new shoots were it looked brown but luckely thats just the plant growing dark red leaves because it was moved to a bright windowsill. Now two more pitchers are coming out. I cant wait till they open i will post a picture when it starts opening. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Wow, sweet!

    Congrats on your success man! From what I hear, cephs take a great deal of patience to grow [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    TO GERMINATE?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] I thought the 3 months was with stratification of the seeds included, not germination alone.

    Ha! You have NO idea! I've had one for close to a year now, and it's SMALLER than when I got it. That might, of cource, be because I almost killed it at one point... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    But I know what you mean. I just noticed today that the first decent sized pitchers are inflating since the near-death experience.

    My ceph is one of my pride and joys. I watched what was not much more than leaf sit for months and months...then finally TINY pitchers....for many more months...then finally a bit bigger pitcher...and so on. Finally in this last year it has starting putting out large (relatively speaking!) pitchers and a lot of them! It has been making 3-5 pitchers at a time. Right now there are probably 5 pitcher buds forming.

    They are slow to get going but seems like they hit a point where they really start to grow fairly quickly. Its producing pitchers around 1"...not huge I know but when you've seen it when it was nothing more than a leaf, those pitchers seem gigantic. At any rate, it seems to be quite healthy and I love looking at it. Gives me great pleasure. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
