    One of my fovourite cephs

    There are certainly a lot of named clones out there that are not worthy of naming.

    You and I share the same likes for that. Apart from my location plants, most of my ceph collection has been reduced to those with unusual pitcher shapes or sizes.

    Hi @Bidde, I like the pitcher shape.

    @Bidde, is that Squat?
  5. I presume the one you have seen is the one that creates a rosette of leaves? If so, then it is not to my taste, however it is unusual and would qualify for cultivar status.
  6. I thought it was from grower Alexander Fisch‎? There's some pictures of it on one of the Facebook CP groups.

    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.

    Sweet... Cephalotus "Tom Thumb"

    @Harro, I'm pleased it is growing well for you. Carl

    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.

    A good recovery and very nicely grown

    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.
