Cephalotus follicularis

(11 reviews)
Cephalotus, or the Australian pitcher, is prefers mild day temperatures with a significant amount of direct sunlight - partial to full sun. Cool nights are also necessary. As a native to the southwestern coast of Australia, it can be grown outdoors in very mild regions of the United States throughout the year. Many growers in zone 9 regions report that they've kept their plants outdoors throughout the year! Plants in our private collection have successfully experienced snow and temperatures as low as 25°F for a couple days at a time. But, this plant also grows fine in a sunny windowsill with very stable temperatures.

    I got this lovely plant about a month ago. Oka6nted it in a terrarium hoping there would be no transplant shock. The plant did not skip a beat and is sending out several new pitchers. Packaging was phenomenal, shipping was quick and everything is perfect. Don't hesitate, this is good!

    The Cephalotus follicularis I received was a little smaller than I was expecting but still extremely impressive and healthy. Also everything in my order was packaged beautifully and carefully. I'm very happy with everything I ordered and I will definitely be ordering from you again.

    Arrived quickly and very well packed, growing so fast under the grow light, the wife acceptance factor (WAF) is very high. Love the deep green color. Another wonderful addition to our home.
