I've never seen a cephalotus except in photos, although I meant to
add one to my collection this last summer. This is the first time
I've really gotten an idea of how large the pitchers are, since
pictures tend to make things look a lot bigger.
I've heard quite a few growers talk about the "typica" and "giant"
forms of cephalotus, but I've never read anything about them.
Pietrapaolo's book recommends growing them in the shade for larger
pitchers, but that's all I've heard. Are these actually accepted
