The Drosera seedlings make them look even smaller than they are. :wink: Nice plants, good luck getting them to adulthood!

11 months after the last picture, finally I see a mature pitcher, tiny, but mature.

Seed grown Cephalotus are excruciatingly slow, until they develop adult pitchers.

I totally agree with what you said, because I have a friend in Brazil who sowed seeds of this plant in January 2012 and they were only germinate in September of the same year :shock: . From then until reaching adulthood, i think it will take somewhere around 3/4 years :thumbsdown: .

Let there be patience :2095: .

Best regards
