    Sorry if this is old. Im wondering how many people grow sun pitchers in lowland. I keep mine right next to the bical and water them like once every three weeks and they're doing great. Actually its quite surprising that the soil stays wet so long, but its completely closed off and very humid and VERY warm. All that cold water every day stuff never really worked for me.

    It's H. Minor and H. Heteradoxa. yes they are noob sunpitchers, but still. I think I got the H. Minor from Tony, it's awesome

    Oh yea, and I will have pictures as soon as my parents bring the camera back, which hopefully will be tomorrow.

    Hey, maybe I'll give heli's a shot. Are your plants producing mature pitchers under these conditions?

    Sounds like a bit of a "juggling act". Say hello to the Captain!

    I grow my H. heterodoxa x minor in my terrarium with other lowland neps. It loves it in there. Huge spoons and lots of tasty nectar.

    Hey larry I think im going to the lacps meeting, is it at the same place and time?

    And yes they both have mature pitchers, but the minor actually started out with them. I think drew would remember when I was waiting for the heteradoxa to start making mature pitchers, well it finally did.

    My mom still isn't home yet with the camera, but I should be able to get a couple pics up tonight.

    I also grow my Heliamphora in lowland conditions. They haven't had any problems so far.
