    I transplanted some over the wintertime. And ripped apart the rhizomes like I would with Flytraps to divide them.
    Didn't seem to set em back much either cause the forming pitchers continued to grow and open. All the divisions were looking good too.
    Now they're all still doing quite good so I wouldn't worry about the transplantation process er anythung..

    I should be getting my first H. Minor any day now. It's going in my highland nep grow chamber. You are right though, there is not a lot of info that I could find on these. But from what I did find is that they like it 70's in the day with a nice drop at night, very bright light, and good air circulation. Sounds like they like ultra highland conditions.

    Look at this thread.http://icps.proboards105.com/index.c...6935111&page=1


    I'm going to get a division from Steve so if it's already doing well in his hot conditions maybe it won't do too bad in mine.

    so far mine have been sitting on the shelf with everything else, 65-68f, 40-60RH and misted a couple times a day...

    glider, quogue, may I ask what media you used?


    JMurphy, Clint, back in the early days of the ICPS newsletter there were a couple articles on growing helis for beginners, I think one of them was a "beginner's corner" feature article

    and wistuba has a couple good papers floating around, it will be nice to get the CDROM this summer , it's hard to search through pdf files with dialup LOL

    heli link

    I'd like to see a return of "Beginner's Corner"
