This month we change our focus a little bit to a unique plant that deserves special recognition. Cephalotus follicularis, the Albany Pitcher Plant, or Australian Pitcher Plant comes from a small section of southwest Australia. This little plant embroils itself in some drama over whether the declarations of a unique cultivar are legitimate or if they are mostly just environmentally induced. Regardless, whether you have a cultivar, a wannabe, or anything in between, share a picture of your ceph.

As usual, here are the rules:
1. You can share only pictures you took personally.
2. You can submit only 1 photo for this contest.
3. Pictures shared in previous contests are not eligible.
4. Minimally edited photos only. No effects, or filters. Cropping is okay.
5. The winner will be the entries with the highest number of thumbs up (likes) votes.
6. Only votes from members with at least 5 posts will count.
7. This contest is open internationally, although there will be an alternate prize for international winners.

Speaking of different, this month’s prize also falls into that category. While @Matt had offered a tissue culture of some Cephalotus that he is growing, we decided that may be a bit out of reach for most people Instead, The Flytrap Store is providing a Drosera ‘Hercules’ for our prize. These haven’t been offered for sale at the Flytrap Store yet, but Matt is growing them out in the greenhouse. One thing you can be certain of, if Matt says it is a Hercules, then a Hercules it is; not a mislabeled wannabe.

You should join us in Hollyhocks contests, that is where I got my adorable little monster.

Started out a tiny cluster purchased from the FTS two or three years ago. Present day, even after having divided up the plant up and repotting in late 2022.

Two different plants under the same conditions with two very different results. I believe the plant on top came from Carnies a couple of years ago. The bottom one I got on a trade last summer.

A little late to the party with a rather old photo. It looks greener now since it's winter.
