The advantage of seed grown Cephalotus

Recommended Posts

 The plant has been grown from seeds that I got 3.5 years ago from John Yates from Oz. I got approx. 35 seeds from Cephalotus Northcliffe × self from his mother plant (there are somewhere pics of the mommy in CPUK in his threads).

 

 

  • its code is DD-C001: Northcliffe

 

The plant now in early winter.

Yes, only one plant showed those characteristics and was selected from the others from the same batch. It gets that code.

Hello

Is there any observation that a Cephalotus plant after blooming is worse growing than before or does the flower do not harm the plant or the growing of the plant?

I am not concerned about the highest temperature but so far my thermostat and heater combination has kept the temperature at just above freezing.
