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

Bang on there mobile !

There's been absolutely no change in my seedlings in last 3 weeks, in most plants this would be where they'd be taking off.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that there's one of those freaky fast growing plants amongst them !

I have seed grown Cephs seedlings which grow extremely fast. The reason for this is selected parents.

But on the other hand I have 2 batches Cephs seedlings from the wild seeds and they grow painfuly slow.

Another batch Cephs seedlings again from the wild seeds but from different area in Oz grow also relatively fast.

So, it's very relatively to say - is it slow or fast they grow according to my experience. Matter of experiment is for now under different conditions and potting mix...
