Of course... It goes without saying that moderators get the 'choice' pics right Jaie? :o)
(Hehh... I'm just needling Ng.. it's fun!)
just interested :
Whats the size of the plants ?
have they been propagated invitro ?
how long have the been outside the "bottle" ?
Have they mature pitchers ?
1) about average to what everything else I see...A couple nice pitchers...fits in a 3 inch pot
2) Propagated in-vitro
3) They have been out of the bottle for a few months- plants are about a year old...they would be bigger ( I think ) but there was a learning curve...They don't do well with heat...When they get too hot...they just stop grwoing....they don't die. They just don't grow!
4) Yes there are mature pitchers...not many...1-2 good size pitchers.
Ok.. here's the run down with the Heliamphora. *We're going to have a total of about 200 plants. *They'll be sold as small, medium and large. *See pics for reference. *The small will run about 8 or 9 dollars, medium around 12-13 dollars and larger about 19-21 dollars. *We'll have about 20 large plants, 100 mediums and the balance will be small. * Most are very healthy... and of course only the MOST healthy will be sold. * These plants have actually been out of the 'bottle' for about 8 months... so they are well acclimated and ready to ship. *There have been problems with heat, and general growing conditions over the summer... *which is why the're just now being released with the cooler temps. * They'll more than likely be seasonal... about 200-300 per year around February to March.
If you would like one of these plants, but aren't quite ready to take delivery... let us know ASAP so we can hold one for you. *The latest we can hold them, however, is March 1st. *After that, it starts to get too hot here in Houston to grow them successfully.
So, take a look at the pics... and contact us if you're interested!
