Cephalotus follicularis 'Big Boy'

11th June 2012

There is a madness come upon the growers the Venus Fly Trap that has resulted in more named cultivars than need, desire or comprehension can encompass. Madness is like a modern butter substitute, it spreads and it has reached out to the Albany Pitcher Plant and coated it. At present there are only half a dozen names being touted around but in every carnivorous nook and cranny there are growers raising seedlings with en eye to making their name or their fortune.
'Big Boy' is one of the cultivars that claim to be large but Cephalotus are slow to propagate and all the plants I know are quite young. Time will tell if it is distinct in any significant way.
