    Heliamphora sp. "Akopan," "Amuri," "Angasima" . . .

    Here are a few shots of the "new" Heliamphora from August and October, all three as yet undescribed by Wistuba -- Heliamphora species "Angasima," "Akopan," and "Amuri." They've finally "freshened-up" a bit from rough handling by the lowland gorillas of the USPS, and shown some new growth and even some mature leaves with the arrival of cooler weather and our first rains in Northern California. They are all tissue-cultured plants from Germany and look, so far, to be rapid growers . . .

    Thanks for those kind words. Heliamphora are also among my favorites, especially since they grow year-long -- and probably also having seen some in the wild, while in college, back in the 1990s.

    I currently grow the bulk of my Heliamphora in a 1:1:1 ratio of live sphagnum moss, pumice, and perlite in shallow water trays; and I have some in various bark mixtures as an experiment, though have seen no real differences in terms of media . . .

    Amazing.

    So you just leave these guys out side? I'm currently trying to seal up my greenhouse so I can grow more highland tropicals during the winter.

    I generally grow adult Heliamphora outside and keep the juveniles under lights or on windowsills until they consistently produce adult leaves and reach a healthy size. The climate of Northern California seems to suit them . . .
