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.
