Cephalotus Qs

by ReefPlant » Thu Jun 04, 2009 5:07 am

Hello everyone,
This could be 90% Impatience, and 10% curiousity, but has anyone ever pulled pitchers or leaves wit success past the Spring? I have read as much available material as i can find. Some sources i have found say to not take pullings past early spring. Others don't mention any certain time to take pullings or divisions/rhizome cuttings, just how. I can understand if this is not a wise thing to do to a plant outside of the growing season because the chances of success or lowered to the point of not making it worth it. However, if people have taken pullings outside the growing season let me know. I will let patience prevail if it isn't wise to do so!
Is this because of inadequate developement from pulling till dormancy for the young plantlet? would artificial conditions help change the odds?
Or is it because of the natural growth cycle of the plant?
:?: To many plants... not enough time...

Updates on the growth!
All of the previous pullings rooted! Today i impatiently repotted them, but i think they're going to take it. More to come :geek:

About my previous question...
Outside of the growing season is going to be my cut-off. If the plant is healthy and in a state of solid growth it's a possibility.
Hope you enjoy the Pictures!

Wow, you've got some crazy Cephs going on there. I think that as long as they are actively growing, you can still snip off cuttings.

Congratulations on the good strike rate you have some beautiful plants, I can't wait until mine get bigger. How old is your largest plant ?

For now my plants are the only stock I have. If you don't mind waiting i'll let you know when the pullings take and start sending up pitchers. Hummer's soon :geek:

Once i get organized and start TCing. :P These plants are the next explants. Plus VFs.

Linton, i would guess the largest plants is around 5-6 years old. I have only started the the pullings myself. They are crawling along... Next spring i'm going to make some root cuttings. If they sprout as fast as they say, then the largest plant may only be 3-4 yrs. I'm learning as i go but i'm getting a good diversity of specimens to compare to and it's helping.
Thanks for the compliments! They have claimed the nicest terrarium in the house you know ;) Completely worth it!!!
