    Greetings,

    I received the following Cephalotus as a division from a larger plant on April 1. The 2 pitchers in the center were still green and had their lids closed. As soon as they opened, I knew the plant had recovered and was ready to grow.


    This photo was taken 2 months later and at a slightly different angle. The new pitchers are rapidly developing.

    Enjoy,
    Brian

    [QUOTE]Nice color. Is it kept outside?

    It would fry up outside here in Montana. I use a standard 4 tube 40 watt fluorescent unit. The lights are 50% cool white, 50% grow lights. I keep the plant 8" from the lights. I moved it 6" below the lights last week and the new pitchers turned deep purple/black.
