  1. The plant must definitely go to the gym and take more proteins - if You want 10cm :-). Really impressive size, Congratulations !
  2. Hi All I see that I contributed to the creation of discussion. It was not my goal to create a dispute. I’m cultivate Cephalotus plants for only several years and my experience in this group of plants is only just emerging. I can at this moment completely agree with Mr. Dave Evans and pokie22. . Effects of light intensity, humidity, substrate composition, etc. has a very large impact on the appearance of the plant. I put a link to my topic and update, please check this : .... As seen in the example of Big Boy, just change the light intensity to get a lot bigger sizes traps, and speed up the growing. As many of the breeders - so many different growing conditions and many different plants. Thank You Pokie's for confirm my beginner clue. Regards Marek
  3. Hi All again Please , It was not my goal to create a dispute. It is time to share with You some new pictures and experience. Thank You for Pokie's to tell me the answers for my doubt, I think that is now right way in growth my cephalotus plants. Here You are my all 4 plants : Dudley Watts goe_C002, Hummer Giant, Eden Black goe_C003 and the first one from the left Giant from Mr. Wistuba. German Gian, Dudley Watts goe_C002, Hummer Giant, Eden Black goe_C003 To confirm also fact that some giant forms grow very slowly, here is the cephalotus Giant - origin A. Wistuba. It has now a few years and growth was very slow. This year he show up some progress – new growing points emerge near the rim of the pots. Also this plant will go to a shady position for next year. Dudley Watts goe_C002 and HG together, same size small pots. HG and Eden Black goe_C003 together. Dudley Watts goe_C002. Dudley Watts goe_C002 – the bigger pitcher was form in the back of the pots, when the sun exposure was lowest. Now we have HG – looks the plant starving for bigger place to growth. Also, You see the plants grows up. HG gets more green/Yellow color. I heard a few times that Giant forms do not gets strong colors, sound correct. Next proof that the bigger trap was form at the back of the pots. And here is something special for a fan of the wide midrib – see the most hidden trap at the back of the pots. Also most Cephalotus growers knows that if the plant grows in strong light getting strong, colored but smaller traps, not to much typical leafs - only pitchers. Please see the picture now, all bigger traps growing at the back side of the plants was bigger, It was where a little more shade is appeared. Now some update, my nice growing Eden Black goe_C003, looks like this plant clone my conditions and soon I will see nice clumps of darker traps. Next to confirm – the bigger pitcher was growth in the back of the pot. ++ Eden Black goe_C003 in the nice color, I think that I have to many sphagnum in my soil to get fully dark color. Will check this next season. To confirm this, I made also some experiment. Did You remember my Big Boy plant – please check the picture from first page. This plant was repotted this spring. Then I was put it to the shade positions, no direct light. There was also a place for newly arrived Julie Jones (I was get a very small plant), and few seedling of Julie Jones x ? from Stephen seeds from previous Years. Julie Jones goe_C006 x self ? Julie Jones goe_C006 – nice strength growth. This is the stunning growth, as You see the Big Boy gets really big size. This plant grew a few years for me and the growth was very slow. Please see also vertical lid . Last picture is the front exposure of lots of pitchers, back side of the pot – lots of non carnivorous leafs – shade conditions. So conclusion is that to get “in my growing condition” good size of the cephalotus, I need put them to the more shaded position. My growing position is to harsh to get big size of the plant – but this will be fully confirmed in next autumn. This spring I will repot all my Cephalotus, and half of divisions will be put to shady locations to check and compare the result. I’m sure that the growth will show new evidence. Happy growing Marek
  4. Jozef Thanks for pictures. Your HCG is definitely other than my. I will try post some calculation in next days.
  5. Thank you all for your opinions. I have an idea and I have to study it, I think I know the answer to the HG puzzle. Give me a few days to take photographs and calculations.
  6. I will arrange some improvement. Will put the plant in the more shaded area. Growing in full sun is always good for nice colour but the traps growing smaller. As for the origin, I have confirm that very mature mother plant developing 6cm traps. So my only question was to check how it looks this in other collections - especially I want know how it is with the vertical lid. It can be also full sun actions, and when the plant will grow in a little shade the humidity and temperature will be changing - developing bigger and more opened traps.
  7. Hi again Just a little update and question. Hummer Giant have now 3-4 years from cutting. I need use now bigger pots, so it is time to divide. I want ask Cephalotus growers about opinion - the plant have still small traps without characteristic vertical lid. Should I wait to fully maturity of the plant to get this look ? What is Your experience with this cultivar. And here You are first seedling of Eden Black x self seeds that I was harvested in Autumn time. They was germinatef after 4 months (with cold stratification). Regards
  8. Hi Just let You know only that the leaf cutting was died, so no luck in this case. But I was just end harvesting seeds - lots of normal form and great looking EDEN BLACK seeds (mostly self pollinated). I will try sow them and we see if there will be next EB generations from seeds :-). Regards
  9. It is a few days later now and the flower stalk of Eden Black looks bigger and have more reddish color. For most cephalotus I using dead sphagnum moss as top dressing. So it is usually not very wet, due loosely condition. The picture was taken last days and we have now very hot temperatures here. I using tray watering method, and refilling the water when the tray is empty. So that's why the soil looks a little dry, it was time when the water level was very low. As for the white trap, it was not covered during growth. This is a natural anomaly, which appeared in the autumn.I'm thinking about taking a leaf pulling but it's still a very small plant and leaves, so I do not know if this succeed. I will try to do leaf pulling this week and will report later about the situation. Regards
  10. Hello Just a few picture from my cephalotus family. This Year I have luck to see them in flower. Cephalotus normal forms : Cephalotus Hummers Giant Cephalotus Dudley Watts Cephalotus Big Boy with some albino trap : And finally Cephalotus Eden Black that was arrive to me last autumn. The most amazing is that this small one is set for me flower :-). Thanks Stephen. I hope to see some dark pitchers this summer - autumn time, need wait. Regards
  11. This looks for me like fungal problem.
  12. It is working well like Dieter wrote, especially for larger forms due more supply of the food from stolon. Tuber will sprout again the stolon or will develop new tuber (no new grow on the surface). So do not dig again :-) just wait for new season, and pot the broken stolon. Regards
  13. Hello All A few photos from the period of autumn. MK H101 S. x `Hummer Hammerhead’ (DC 2004) MK L48A Hot pink Selections 1, Botanique Young and old leafs to compare - still so small. Drosera Rubrifolia Nepenthes Jamban Nepenthes Sibuyanensis - new formed pitcher - in few days the rim will turn black. Pinguicula Kondoi Cephalotus with freshly opened lid and after few days in light. Drosera Bulbosa ssp. Major - this Year very huge and healthy. Drosera aff. Rosulata - a few new plants this Year was grow up from the sand :-). Drosera Erythrorhiza ssp. Squamosa - laterite growing form. Drosera Macrophylla ssp. Monantha - after one Year of waiting. Regards Marek
  14. Trev, Your plants had definitely bigger patches like mine, but also great plants. I will try grow them next season and will check if this trait is typical or only luck. Regards Marek
