Cephalotus Cultivars can only be propagated by cloning.
If your plant did not come with a positive identification, it can only be labeled as a "Typical".
You can contact the seller and ask him.
But the odds are, if this was a Cultivar, it would have been labeled and priced accordingly.
If it grows up to have some outstanding feature, you register it as a new Cultivar.

Good growing,
Mike

This tends to be the case, as cultivars are sometimes more 'sought after' than the de-facto species.
It also looks like a typical. I'd also start off with a typical so you don't kill nice cultivars (because, when propagated, they can be traded for cool species, like Helis). Best not to waste money or plants on plants you're not sure of.

Cephalotus is a fairly fun plant, regardless. I've got tiny, slow growing cultivars, and I love my typicals and clone #13 so much more than my German Giant. They're just more showy with all their mature traps.

Have fun in your Ceph Adventures!

Well, I have asked the seller but he don't remember the plant's ID and he said the plant was propagated by tisse culture, do this mean there's a chance this little guy is a new Cultivar? Thank you for the information you gave me and happy growing.

I really like this plant so it doesn't matter if this wasn't a Cultivar, I just want to know the little guy's ID, I guess I have to wait until the little guy grown up to see any special features or not. I'm doing some leaf cuttings and hope it will work to incase I kill my plant, the little guy is starting to have coloration under full sun :D :D
Happy growing man.
