This first plant had been happily growing on my windowsill for a couple of years, then last winter suffered badly with mildew. I stripped most pitchers off the plant and sat it outside with no protection at all, I'm pleased with the results. Pitchers aren't as big as when on the windowsill as it was more shaded but they show a nice colour a small plant of the same clone with darker colour now seed grown , seed produced by my plants , first pic is seed germinated spring 2016 2015 seedlings. and 2014 seedling
You're not wrong Fred, I was short on space before deciding to farm cephalotus , always plenty of room in the green bin:-) I was hoping to end up with a plant that didn't look the same as all the others but seem to of failed .
This plant I grew from seed has only known flo lights and is just over three years old, pitchers are a nice size and are at least as large as its mum/farther (selfed) it has some siblings outside since spring showing darker colour and smaller pitchers , I'll get a pic when the suns out but at the moment we're in the middle of a thunderstorm
Got a break in the weather and a pic of the outside siblings , pitcher colour is redder not darker , still wet from the storm if any member wants some seedlings they are welcome free of charge as I have far too many
couple of my seed grown plants ,haven't got too many of these knocking about anymore due to various different ways i can kill a plant both these pots have spent the winter outside and pretty much unloved ,I do seem to of lost a pot of older seedlings ,I did the year before too they just seem to dry up
Some of my seedlings grew much more rapidly than others, seemingly in exactly the same conditions ie pot ,you've done better than many to germinate the seed and keep the plant alive so long . Problem if you try to change anything you risk killing it completely
