    Here's a heliamphora pic I took yesterday. H. ionasii. This heliamphora was the fastest to adjust after I bought it and hasn't slowed down a bit. I need to repot, in fact, at which time I'll break it up. Anyone else growing this one? It seems to be an easy heliamphora in my limited experience.

    Awesome plants!

    I have only been growing H. ionasii for only a few months, but it does continue to put out pitchers fast, even if they are only the immature ones. I have read that this is a more difficult one to grow.

    Thanks everyone! Not only does San Francisco have good highland nepenthes weather, but it works for heliamphora too. I have these in a tank, but there is no lid on it. I'm growing some H. heterodoxa x minor open air with the nepenthes and they're happy.

    Kirk,
    I'd guess I've had the plant for about eight months. It was about half this size when I got it from Tony (obviously.) He gets the bulk of the credit here.

    I have one of these for about 1 yr. When I first got it, I placed it in one of my terraria and it did well. Recently, I transfered it to a grow rack because it was getting too tall for the terrarium. It's covered with a transparent plastic bag with holes punched into it (which I'll take off after about 1 mo). Seems to be adjusting well.

    So, the plant has been easier for me to grow than what I thought. Too bad I can't say the same for those darned cephalotus!
