    Im hoping your source had 12 of them, if so I have one just like it on the way

    their natural enviroment has an annual rainfall of 160" IIRC

    most refs will tell ya.....cool, top water frequently but drain very well (no tray) and very bright

    Well my container is NOT drained, but the roots are so far above the bottom of the tray that if there is water resting at the bottom, it should not hurt.

    I know that they like to be cool, I was told by someone that you should just grow em like a darlingtonia except with less water.. that's mostly why I decided to get one since my darlingtonia seems to LOVE my grow shelf.

    Av8tor1, I am forever in debt to you for recommending those bulbs. They are just AWESOME.. I have a P. 'Aphrodite' that is NEON pink because of them!

    i am still new to helis but the no drain part would worry me, but I guess as long as you can monitor any water build up

    in Adrain Slack's classic book he suggest misting them every time you look or walk by them. I don't do that... but I do mist a couple times a day and make sure the pitchers always have some water in them

    mine stay around 40-60%RH with spikes up into the 80% range after a misting

    and yw on the bulbs, your heli will love them as well

    Nice heli. I think that gravity and light will fix any root or rhizome problem.
    It is better to burn out, than to fade away....

    I'm not sure that problem was really anything abnormal... I think the rhizome is just naturally HUGE... though I don't know why. It has been solved... with the massive pot, lol.

    chrono,

    mine arrived today, almost a duplicate of yours... my mailman hates me I think, I got home around 3:00pm to find mine (box) in a plastic shopping bag hanging from my mailbox next to the road, it had been baking in the sun for about 4 hours (90+ here), it definitely got hot

    I immediatly soaked her in some cool water with supertrive and trichoderma....



    ugh, I hope it lives... at least its a heterodoxa x minor

    Wow! I had to go to the post office and pick it up.. they never seem to leave stuff at my door anymore. It's better that way though.

    It doesn't look so bad.. then again, I'm no heli expert...

    Good luck... I hope it hangs in there for ya!
