  1. " Editor's note: ....... Growers with gigantic Cephalotus specimens can be quite confident it is the same clone that John described in his article." I Measured this one 7.5cm pitcher, so is this 'Hummer's Giant'?
  2. Especially I like this part from the cultivar description: " Editor's note: ....... Growers with gigantic Cephalotus specimens can be quite confident it is the same clone that John described in his article. John is busy with his fieldwork and collection, so is unable to send people specimens of this cultivar, but if you want it-look around. It is increasingly common in collections. (BAMR)"
  3. I remember I got 10 seeds from USA friend and only 3 germinated.... Anyway, yes, when the plant was small it was painfully slow growing .I found some old pics of the same plant in my facebook archives. No idea it is male or female. So far the plant is quite shy to flower though. Do u plan to grow N. truncata from seeds? 2016 year 2017 year
  4. This one is seed grown approx 7 years old. It grows freely outside on my balcony....

  7. Here is interesting comparison: left Cephalotus 'Bananito" ( Eden Black x self seed grown) vs its parent Cephalotus 'Eden Black' - right Cephalotus 'Bananito'
  8. Got this clone a few years ago from US as very small dying plant but it bounce back from the root. Clone from late Dennis Hastings collection...

    watering orchids

    It much depends on the orchids genera. However, for example: u can't water Cattlleya and Dracula one and the same way...or Pterostylis and Oncidium...

  11. Here are interesting pics to compare with. Two registered cultivars. Left is Cephalotus 'Bananito' ( 'Eden Black' x self ) vs. its parent Cephalotus 'Eden Black'
  12. True enough . Only I can add - make sure u can trace back your 'Eden Black' to Stephen Morley, otherwise u may end up disappointed...

    Alexis, I'm not a chimp and don't think someone of the other peeps discussing in this thread is a chimp , so you should ban yourself because u insult the people and you brake the forum rules: Forum rule '2]> Personal attacks, rudeness, 'Flame Wars', insults to others, or arguments will not be tolerated. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully. Any member who threatens anyone on the forum, via Private Message, email, or other means will be banned immediately and without notice. '

    CPUK is now run by CPS. Looks like they will inflict much more moderation that Andy did ever. You have more moderators than members and all I see is a slow dying forum and it has been dying for years. Now the CPS will ensure it keeps going in that direction . However, nothing personal but it is quite ironic that Sheila is global moderator here now as she abondoned CPUK forum when Aidan and all his cronies moved to his doomed to fail forum as it happened... Freedom of speech, hey
