  5. Tips for growing these plants?

    North facing window, you are very limited in choice, Mexican Pinguicula may survive
  6. What is this moss

    Well it's not Sphagnum. Could be one of hundreds of species of terrestrial moss

    Well all I would say as a final note, and I mean final note as I'm completely f***ed off ... You stick your head above the parapet and try and publish a cultivar and see how difficult it is, and I'll give you some constructive feedback. If anyone wants to contact me I'll be at edenblack(at) btinternet.com. Otherwise enjoy your plants, which is what I intend to do. Adios.

    Ronny (silverback) asked me to post this for him, his 'Eden Black'. He says it is the darkest of all his Cephalotus. Eden Black Ronny Heirbaut by gardenofeden67, on Flickr

    sorry, you misunderstand me, I am very intersted in Cephalotus "in wild locations", and I love seeing plants in the wild, I'm just not interested in the latest fad for collecting Cephalotus clones from named wild locations, like the seed you have been selling recently. If the plants turn out to be good growers with interesting features then fair enough... I actually think it is a bit irresponsible to sell location seed, as I feel it increases the pressure on wild populations, and is completely uneccesary as the plant is well established in cultivation...and as you say there is just the one basic Cephalotus so where's the need? perhaps this is the topic for a new thread....

    no, 6 plants don't mean its stable, but you said you had not seen any. the issue is I really don't understand who the "so many others" are and similar quotes that keep being repeated ...I've never had anyone complain to me about the colour, as far as I'm aware it is a few individuals. it's information that this thats keeps getting banded around by a few people with an axe to grind that really bothers me, rather than the facts. Perhaps we should have a couple of photo threads, one for those who get good colour, and one for those who don't..... the whole point of cultivars by the way, its all about plants in cultivation.

    Dimitar, I don't believe I took it out of context. You have made this or similar comments more than once yet without justification or first-hand experience. Completely unfair.

    proved by whom? you?
