Cephalotus follicularis is a small carnivorous plant that grows in the wild on the south-west coast of Western Australia. It is a particularly interesting species due to its unique appearance, with leaves that develop in the form of small vessels or pitchers.

To care for this plant, you must consider the following aspects:
Light : Cephalotus follicularis needs exposure to strong light, but not direct exposure to the scorching summer sun.
Moisture : This plant requires a moist environment to survive. It is important to keep the soil permanently moist and to sprinkle the leaves regularly to prevent them from drying out.
Soil: Cephalotus follicularis prefers an acidic soil rich in nutrients. It is recommended to use a mixture of peat and perlite or vermiculite, which allows good water drainage.
Feeding: Like other carnivorous plants, Cephalotus follicularis needs insects to survive. It is important not to feed the plant with meat or other food, but to allow it to procure its own food.
