  • 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 one of the exact plants pictured:  a small clump of small to medium sized plants with spring leaves and juvenile pitchers, potted in a 10cm pot

        • 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
