Cephalotus follicularis “Diflora Giant” Potted
Cephalotus follicularis is one of the most desired carnivorous plants in cultivation, it is a curious pitcher plant with compact growth, with bristly, colorful traps that are seemingly yawning for a bite to eat!
This is a new cultivar to us, “Diflora Giant” Coal Mine Beach x Big Boy and we expect it to produce large pitchers!
Please be aware that this can be a bit tricky to grow. Make sure that you do not let your plants sit in water all of the time but do not let them dry out. They also like lots of direct light and good air flow. The second potted photo is the small size and the final photo is the medium size.
