This is my first cephalotus. For over 2 months, there are more pitches and leaves but they are not bigger . Pitch is about 1/4 inch. Do you think plant will grow bigger or not?. Thanks.

A little more light may bring out some more color, but its a beautiful plant. Nice job. It will definitely get bigger.

Update:
After 3 months, plants grow a little bigger but too slow. How long does it take to be adult? 10 year? LOL. Thanks for watching.

Looks like nice growth to me! Cephs are very slow growers. And no predicting adult pitchers. It just happens. I'm growing a few from seed and it's looking like I may not have them flower for 3-4 years.

I personally would give it a tad bit more light. Other than that, it's a pretty healthy plant!:-D

It might do with more light, but Cephalotus will grow in relatively shady conditions too (you might find more leaves than pitcher however). The transition from young to mature pitchers is not a gradual thing, it will happen between one leaf and the next, so as mentioned predicting when that occurs is simply a roll of the dice.
