My Ceph Loves Me, And Hates Me...

by Daniel_G » Wed Jul 27, 2011 7:29 am

Well, as you may know, i have a Cephalotus, which is my pride and joy! It's made it's first few pitchers since i got it, but, they're about half the size of the older pitchers. And green, instead of red. But they are absolutely covered in nectar! All the teeth have it on them. It's like the stickiest teeth you've seen.

So does my Ceph love me or hate me?

You can't see the nectar too well at this close, but you can make it out.
There doesn't sem to be as much nectar as i saw earlier, i hope it lasts a while.
