    You're absolutely welcome. Of the Heliamphora species which are the simplest to grow, I would suggest H. heterodoxa, H. nutans, H. ionasii, H. minor, and H. pulchella (once considered simply a hairy form of H. minor for many years). Also consider species which also exist at "lower" elevations in Venezuela, such as H. chimantensis.

    Of hybrids, H. heterodoxa x minor, H. nutans x minor, and H. nutans x ionasii are all easily cultivated and can take some punishment . . .

    Good luck.

    Here are those same plants about a year out from the beginning of this thread. Of the three, H. sp. "Amuri" was the slowest to get established, but has since divided a number of times. All three plants are particularly vigorous, a fairly rare occurrence for some Heliamphora species, and usually limited to the hybrids . . .

    Heliamphora sp. "Akopan"


    Heliamphora sp. "Angasima"


    Heliamphora sp. "Amuri"

    Unbelievable! They are gorgeous! I can't decide if I like the "Akopan" or "Angasima" better. Also, how is your H. sarraceniodes doing?

    Thanks . . .


    I have been very pleased with their performance and I've even managed a division or two within only one year . . .

    The "new" Heliamphora are nice -- and quite vigorous; and I have a H. spec. nov. "Lowland Testigos" and H. spec. nov. "Foothill" on order from Germany, which also look promising.

    The H. sarracenioides are doing quite well, dividing, and sending up new adult leaves. The even cooler California weather in Fall certainly helps. That species definitely wants nights in the fifties and lower . . .

    Heliamphora sarracenioides




    Thanks, Av, especially considering your great Heliamphora successes . . .
