    Holy cow! I could put my foot into that and wear it as a moccasin!

    Beautiful plant.

    Any info about the conditions this plant is grown under? Just curious as to how "one of best ceph growers" grows his plants.

    Thanks Gus!

    John Hummer brought a tank of plants like that to the ICPS Conference at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Incredibly impressive - he sold them all w/in a 1/2 hour or so.

    Ron,

    You are not the only one whom I have heard say this.
    I had a plant form Bruce Bednar that I unfortunately killed a few years ago, but it was the size of this plant pictured and it was deep maroon. AFAIK, it was no special clone.
    I really have a hard time arguing against charles Brewer, though, whether giant clones exist or not.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Joe,
    I completely agree. Charles is a good friend and I have been to his place and seen his collection. His passion for and knowledge of cephs is pretty amazing.

    If you had a plant this size and it was maroon, that would be an argument for a special clone (even though you did not think it was). Any of the plants I've heard of or seen this large were all green and grown in fairly low-light situations. A large maroon plant may be unique.... never heard of one. How did you grow it (substrate, lighting, pot size, etc)?

    My largest 'Hummer's Giant' spent the summer in the sun last year (which technically many say is a no-no), was nicely colored but had traps just a little over 1". Although it did have 3-4 growth points and sent one shoot over about 6 inches to start a new colony (pretty cool).

    All the best,
    Ron Lane

    Ron,
    Originally, it was in pure peat, of all things. This was advice from Mr. Allen Lowrie himself.
    Then the mix went sour and I repotted into something closer to what Mr. Brewer uses. I used 40% milled pshagnum, 40% perlite, 10% peat and 10% sand.
    However, I think the main thing with these guys is letting the tray dry out before re-filling. I don't think they like sitting in water all the time.

    Cheers,

    Joe
