Here are some pictures of my "Tank Ceph 2", sibling to 'Eden Black'. It's only small but putting out new baby pitchers on a regular basis.

Very nice. I wish we could get the Tank Ceph 2 and Eden Black here on the other side of the pond!

Both are difficult to get here, with 'Eden Black' being almost impossible.

Me too, but it seems like we have to wait until 'Tank Ceph 2' grow up enough to make a cutting and wait for someone to send it to this side.

Nice plants indeed, they need to be shared to the world.

There are "Tank ceph 2" which are mature enough to produce cuttings. In fact, mine is third generation I believe. The problem is that it is prohibitively expensive and very time consuming to send plants out of Europe.

Yes, it is, but the sacrifice would be wothwhile, so many people would pay all the shipping issues just to have such a great plant, I spent nearly 80 Euros to have one Heliamphora pulchella and four highland Nepenthes (like my beautiful jamban) from Czech Repubic to Mexico.

80€ wouldn't even pay for the Phytosanitary certificate here in the UK.

Here's what it currently looks like. Unfortunately, the moss is doing rather well too...

This one hit a setback, with pitchers looking limp and some of them dying off. I have no idea what caused it but as it looked unhealthy I decided to remove all the existing soil and re-pot. Fortunately, this worked and the pitchers that hadn't completely died-back recovered and it has started to put out new pitcher... phew. In order to recover I have changed the lighting to something that should encourage growth but this unfortunately means less colouration.

Here's a couple of pictures of it today:

Sorry to hear that, but at least you still have it which is what matters. Good luck with it.

Carl, do you know if there is a waiting list for this clone?

Cheers,

I don't know how many of this clone are in circulation and, of those, how many are large enough for propagation. The forum member that I obtained it from no longer comes on here and neither does the member who they got it from. You can see that mine is a good few years away from being able to produce cuttings.

I have tried contacting LJ but have had no reply, I thought that Stephen may have a waiting list as he did for 'Eden Black'.

I tried contacting LJ a little while back and received no reply either. I don't know if Stephen has a waiting list and I don't think I'm even on the 'Eden Black' list.

I contacted Stephen about the 'Eden Black' wish list and he told me it was closed, I quess it just got too long.

I know that a couple of "Tank Ceph 2" were sold on eBay and that HugoMorse passed on at least two but I don't know how many Stephen or Heather have passed on, so don't know how many are in circulation.
