    Cephalotus “Lasyba Giant”

    I don't think there is such a thing as 'typical' as they can express differing characteristics in differing growing conditions. Also, even seeds grown from the same plant can express different characteristics. I personally think this leads to the plethora of named clones but also why those clones may not express the same characteristics in other growing conditions. The so called dark clones are a classic example of requiring specific conditions.

    Cephalotus " Red Monster "

    Bananito is a beautiful clone and in my opinion, worthy of cultivar status given its unusual pitcher shape. The dark colouration when grown in conditions conducive to such is definitely an added bonus to this cultivar.

    My heliamphoras (Pictures heavy)

    I would be interested to know if you still use fluorescent lighting. Many growers seem to have moved to LED lighting, so I was wondering if you have or have considered changing to them?

    Cephalotus 'Eden Black'

    I suspect that you are the only one to have 'Bananito' in cultivation.

    Cephalotus 'Eden Black'

    I believe that it is season dependent. Good colouration comes in cooler weather. Whether this is temperature, light colour temperature or other factor related, I'm not sure.

    Cephalotus 'Eden Black'

    Stunning and worthy of any collection. I'm sure you will agree though, that it needs certain conditions to be met in order to achieve that colouration.

    Dying hummers giant

    Looks very dry to me. I would stand it is a deep tray of water and mist the pitchers when the sun is down.
