Cephalotus follicularis (a.k.a. the Australian or Albany Pitcher Plant) is native to the coastal area of southwestern Australia. The first known reference to the plant is from a diary entry by botanist, Robert Brown, in 1802. The carnivorous pitchers of C. follicularis utilize several tactics for trapping and retaining prey, including semi-transparent “windows” in the lid, bright coloration, nectar, a toothed peristome, and slippery inner walls to name a few. In addition to the carnivorous pitchers, C. follicularis also produces flat, non-carnivorous leaves.


Size and packing method: Plants are shipped in 2 inch pots. Plants with young pitchers are about an inch in diameter, semi-adult specimens have 1-2 mature pitchers 0.75-1 inch long.

    I have received two separate orders from these guys and they are outstanding! My first order contained a cephalotus and a nepenthes hookeriana and they were just wonderful! I loved them so much I ended up ordering more cephalotus, more nepenthes, and a heliamphora. Love all of my plants and they arrived in superb quality!
