    Exclamation Heli dying!

    My heli has been on a slow decline ever since I got it. It is now developing brown spots on the adult pitcher. The smaller ones seem to be doing fine. I think it is because of the heat at night (70*).
    When I ordered it, the temps were fine, but humidifier failures and other problems caused the nightime temps to go up.

    Can you post a picture? 75* at night might be the issue. Gotta fix that terrarium.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Sounds like a double wammy... Low humidity plus warm nights will make a heli enter unhappy land. You need to get these perimeters under control. Hybrid heliamphora are more adaptable to warmer temperatures, especially those of heterodoxa origin. Good luck...

    Try pressing the little button on top. That usually does the trick.

    Got it! Here we go...

    From front:


    And from top:


    And the little helis:


    And a better terrarium top:


    Diagnosis?

    Also, temps are around 65* at night due to the open window and new top, but I need another solution fast. When my brother gets back from camp, he will not like the night temperatures.

    Oh, and a dying cephalotus pitcher:


    Not too worrying about the ceph; it is sending out new leaves.
