Cephalotus timeline.

This is a plant I purchased from a grower back in spring 2011. This is the first mature-ish looking pitcher it put out in August, 2011. I wish I had taken a shot of the entire plant, but it was about 1.5" across and had 5-8 small immature pitchers when I received it.

Here is the same plant roughly one year later, pictured in a 4” pot.

This photo was taken in the fall of 2012 when being repotted into a 5.5” pot. I had yet to add a top dressing of pure LFS.

This spring it started to flower, these photos were taken April 2013.

Here is a photo of the plant today June 26, 2013. Flowering took a toll on the plant and I have trimmed away any dead or dying pitchers. There are many new pitchers on the way, and in 2-3 months it will look good again.

I finished collecting seeds in the middle of June, roughly 3 months after the first flower spike was noticed.

Very nice drew. Thanks for showing this. Those flower stalks get tall!
Nice! Is this a hummer's giant?
