    In fact only 2 - me and the originator Piacenti Erio.

    However,

    The plant was selected in 2013 by Italian grower Piacenti Erio. In Early 2011,wanting to expand his large Cephalotus collection, he purchased four small seedlings from Ebay labelled as Cephalotus “Eden Black x self”. Over the passage of time Piacenti noticed that one of the four seedlings had unusual shaped pitchers. He separated this plant from the others and started growing it in a separate pot. Being a good friends with Erio he showed me the plant when it first started producing semi-adult pitchers. I was very impressed and instantly recognised the uniqueness of the characteristic pitcher shape. After a year of care under Piacenti’s conditions the plant not only kept that shape but it continued to show its true potential and uniqueness. Such pitcher shape characteristics are not shown in any of the other three clones from which it was separated, nor any other clone in Piacenti's collection.
    The plant has easily distinguishable characteristics from other Cephalotus clones in that the pitchers are elongated, hooked upward – resembling a banana shape, with wide middle rib at the base of fully mature pitchers. Even the small juvenile pitchers show hooked upward form. In mature pitchers, the peristome is large; reminiscent to those of Cephalotus ‘Dudley Watts’ – which could possibly, but not necessarily, be the result of cross pollination involving this clone somewhere along its lineage. Under optimum lighting conditions the pitcher colour is dark brown red. The lid of the pitchers is domed and the colour under it is deep to very deep burgundy red under optimum lighting conditions.
    However, colouration does not form part of this clones unique characteristics, as with all Cephalotus this can vary greatly under different growing conditions, rather it is the pitcher shape that makes this clone unique..
    In my growing conditions, where I grow many Cephalotus clones, this clone shows faster growth than many of them. My growing conditions differ from those of Piacenti's and my division from the mother plant has the same distinctive characteristic shape.
    This clone to date has never been propagated in tissue culture (in-vitro), with all those currently in cultivation being vegetative leaf cuttings from the mother plant. All the resultant plants showing the same unique characteristics.

    Hope that helps and I wrote that, ppl not to guess and not urban legends to occur around that clone...

    This clone I'll give to Pokie22, so it will be available in USA...

    Thanks for the info, I wish that much info was available for other clones.

    This is one of the few Cephs I think should be registered and named after a few years has pasted and enough info from the original growers is gathered.
