    Hey,
    Other than the past few days where we've had a real dry spell, it's usually about 60% day and 80+% night, with quite a few 90+% periods, especially in summer. Fall and winter are the dryest, and it hits 50% from time to time. Right now it's extremely dry as we have easterly winds, and it's only 42% humidity. I ran an ultrasonic humidifier all day in the grow room, and will until the ocean breeze comes back.

    I grow most of the heliamphora in an aquarium tank with no lid. This boosts humidity a bit. You could get more humid with a lid and water in the tank (don't sit the heliamphora in water).

    It's also important that they stay relatively cool, so any sort of basement or garage would be good here near the west coast. I usually get down to the upper fifties overnight in the grow room.

    Check with Tony Paroubek here on the forums. Here's his website:
    Exotic Plants Plus

    It appears he has small versions available.

    Caps, I HAD an ionasii....Which was, indeed, one of the best gowing Heli's I've had the pleasure of growing. Unfortunately, it went the way of the dodo this summer. Just TOO hot.

    May have to get me another one for x-mas, though. Learned my lesson, I did. No more going outside in the summer for Heliamphora. Just too doggon hot.

    This makes me want to try growing a Heliamphora! Although I don't know if my conditions would be good for one.

    They're relatively expensive, right?
