I have another Q for you all. what cephalotus produce the largest pitchers? (in perfect conditions) "hummers giant" "German giant" or big boy I know that "German giant" hat a upright lid, I am just preferring to the pitcher
I remember reading from a source that Hummers Giant and German giants are about the same size, the only main difference is that the German giant grows significantly slower and forms clumps readily. I do often hear that the German giant is referred to as the "true giant" though.
And to answer your other question from the other post, I'm pretty sure that all cephalotus require dormancy. They usually don't have that long of a dormancy though, I know it's significantly shorter than most CP's. And I think that it's okay to skip dormancy every other year if you really wanted to, but I'm not 100% sure on that.
Hello, Im no expert but, I have seen CP's in the southeast of Australia affected by the winter rains as well as the uniformly low temperatures, and I wonder whether this may also play some role in dormancy as it does in the dormancy and or emergence of many Drosera in the wild. I dont know how relevant this may be to cultivation but the southern tip of WA where Cephalotus comes from has a climate more like the southeast. The rest of the state, where rainbow sundews come from, is very different.

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

mylesg: i havent checked in here for a while, why does it seem all the CP forums have lost their once strong activity? the trade/sale section used to be so active and now its a ghost town. where is everybody hanging out these days for a strong online CP community?

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
