Description
Description
  • Many growers regard Cephalotus Follicularis, also known as the Australian pitcher plant, as the crown jewel of their collection
  • This fascinating plant is extremely slow growing and produces two types of leaves - non-carnivorous leaves are produced during springtime followed by the toothy-peristome pitchers that resembles a boxing glove in summer
  • As a native to a small stretch of coast in Western Australia, it can be grown outdoors in very mild regions of South Africa throughout the year, we recommend a sunny windowsill with 4-6 hours direct sunlight at the very least
  • Albany pitcher plants prefer fairly stable conditions and can be quite finicky - we recommend these for the more experienced carnivorous plant enthusiast 
  • In this limited offer, you'll receive a single, well established plant with 1st adult  pitchers, potted in a 10cm nursery pot - fully acclimatised to windowsill conditions and ready to grow
Care
  • Growing Cephalotus:
    • Cephalotus generally grows very slowly and can be a bit temperamental
    • They are excellent candidates for windowsill growing with a couple of hours morning sun. If grown outside, they can tolerate high daytime temperatures (up to 35°C) as long as they experience cool nights
    • Be careful about disturbing and/or overheating the roots (Repotting is not recommended)
    • Proper drainage is very important: Water via the soil and let the water run through, try not to get the leaves/pitchers wet. Ensure proper ventilation to deter powdery mildew
    • If watering via the tray method, let the tray dry slightly between waterings to prevent root rot - keep the soil only damp to the touch
    • Although this plant is technically a warm temperate perennial (requires a short winter dormancy), it adapts well to indoor/windowsill growing. In winter, cool house temperatures of 15°-20°C and short daylight hours are enough to give this plant a short winter rest
    • Due to their finicky nature, Cephalotus Follicularis is recommended for the more experienced cp grower
Disclaimer

  • Just a quick heads-up: since plants are natural products, you might notice some slight variations when unboxing your plants
  • We do our best to make sure the plants you receive look like the ones in the photos, but keep in mind that seasons change and plants grow. Some leaves might fall off, new ones might sprout, and the plants may look a bit different over time
  • 99% of what we sell are one-of-a-kind collector items, so you will receive the exact plant pictured. The labels are spot on, so even if the plant looks a bit different, we 100% guarantee it's the real deal. Also, all the photos you see are of our own plants unless we mention otherwise. We update images occasionally to keep things fresh. If you want to see updated pictures before you buy, just let us know – we're happy to help!
