    My Heliamphora Minor Flower

    I've had this heliamphora minor growing in my terrarium since i think september-october of last year. It is planted in pure peat, had roots that go very deep, 9-10 inches. I fill the traps with RO water every now and again, and every so often, i feed a couple new traps a beta fish pellet. Temps are based on room temp, but the lights (2x T5HO) raise the ambient temp inside. They vary between 24-27 celcius, to room temp at night, i keep all my windows open, so there's always good air circulation. The terra has two slits on either end, to vent air in and out, 1 inch by 12 on either end. They grow alonside a plethora of other cp's that have acclimated to this setup.



    Sadly, my cam's batteries are dead, so this is the only pic for now. MUST FIND CHARGER!!!

    here's a pic of the whole thing a couple weeks ago.



    ok, the other battery lasted long enough to take this:



    ENJOY!!

    Good job, Bloke.

    Pure peat? I don't think I've heard of anybody growing Heliamphora in that media.
