Green Cephalotus

by Viko89 » Mon Apr 15, 2019 11:42 pm

Hello,
I got 2 Cephalotus like 1,5 year ago, both same source, both same soil, same light, litteraly side by side. They never got sick and are growing indoor under a led lights pannel, no dormancy. I water them a little regularily from the top but not too wett, never standing in a tray of water (too scared of molds/mildiew).
The thing is one gets some reddish color (cf third pic) when the other one always remained green (2 first pics).
Is it because of genetic or any sign of a problem ?
NB : the "colored one" tend to grow several small pitchers when "Mister Green" is more growing some big pitchers and a way more leaves.

I did propagate the redish one from a pitcher and you can see it gets enough light to get colored :

It's possible you have an albino clone.
Try switching the positions of the two pots.
See if that makes a difference.

Just a suggestion.

Oh, so there are albinos cephalotus ? I tried to look for that on google but couldn't really find informations about it.
About switching the pots, I did it a few times but they're both against eachother and right under the light.
they always been like that since the day I received them.
I took a leaf off the green one to try a duplication and if it works I'll see how it reacts.

The leaf I took from Mr Green doesn't look like showing death signs after 3 weeks, fingers crossed.

Lol, you sound like you're really interested in it. That would only be the 2nd one, I need to propagate it as much as I can.
By the way, is it rare to have that potentialy green form on cephalotus ?
