Today I received my favorite cp of all time. This plant is the Cephalotus 'Eden Black'. I would like to say a big thanks to FrancisFaustino for reaching out to me and selling the plant to me. I intend to get some better grow lights so the color comes out. I will be updating this thread when stuff happens.

@Berrybob, So you're the other one who got a plant :lol: Very nice! I put mine under my T5s for now but I'm going to get a stronger LED for this one and my other cephs I think.

I'll keep it in mind. I plan on selling or trading divisions and plants from leaf pullings in the future.

Yeah I need to get some LED growlights. T12s aren't cutting it.

Really cool plant! My cephs get pretty dark because I grow them under strong LEDs. I wonder how much darker an Eden black would get. When divisions are a plenty, I'm interested in trading or buying.

Developing pitcher are starting to grow again, and nectar is forming on the peristomes. I do have it bagged right now to acclimate it. I'll post pictures when I get noticeable new growth.
