    2009 Heliamphora updates . . .

    Here are some shots of a few of my Heliamphora, taken as I was fertilizing the lot with 30:10:10 orchid fertilizer, and trimming away some dead winter leaves. Even though the H. ionasii plants below germinated at the same time, about half the pot still remains in a juvenile state. There is certainly something to be said about the variability of seed. The H. sarracenioides below is finally beginning to produce some adult leaves after a sizable wait . . .


    Heliamphora ionasii (Ilu Tepui, from seed)



    Heliamphora folliculata (Aparaman Tepui, from an adult division)



    Heliamphora nutans "Giant" (still a bit worse for wear after a recent division)


    Heliamphora nutans (Mount Roraima)



    Heliamphora sarracenioides (TC)

    That H. folliculata is a killer.

    All your plants are so red, do you grow them in the Cal sun? The plants I'm using florescents with can't compare with that color!

    Thanks. The juvenile plants are generally grown under a compact fluorescent; and, as adults, outdoors in "Sunny California" -- or, more accurately, "Fog City."

    Heliamphora in cultivation are typically starved for light . . .

    Thanks . . .

    Those Heliamphora ionasii plants began in fits and starts, and I initially doubted whether the seeds would germinate at all -- since they sat in my post office box for several weeks. Then, strange intermediate leaves (like the phyllodia seen in Sarracenia -- say that five times fast) were produced; and then the first adult leaves, followed by a batch of juveniles . . .
