We have run out of stock for this item.

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!

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.

if you want cephalotus this is where you buy

I bought the cephalitis from California carnivore quite a while ago, and I have propagated it now into quite a few absolutely wonderful specimens the second picture with multiple is the specimens I was able to successfully clone off the original purchased from this wonderful nursery


It was a neatly packaged plant and seems really healthy! I look forward to seeing it grow up!

Beautiful plant


Super quick transit time, and the plant looked great upon arrival. Not my first order from them, and certainly won't be my last. Always more than pleased with my orders from California Carnivores!

I love Cephalotus and was surprised how tiny the small size was. The medium one I received is turning yellow even though they're getting a lot of light and medium water. I'm hoping they're strong enough to survive.
