    You always could, especially the natural and horticultural hybrids, which tolerate far greater Tb extremes than the "parent" species themselves -- H. nutans x ionasii, H. heterodoxa x ionasii, H. heterodoxa x nutans, H. tatei var. tatei x hispida, H. heterodoxa x minor, and H. "Tequila," chief among them . . .

    I hope so! Having only lowland conditions Heliamphora has always been nothing but a wish for me.
    My temps never drop below 70 even at night with RH always around 60ish.

    Thanks for the hope and good news BB Definitely keep us updated on them!

    Very nice! So are you planning to grow them like your other plants or do you intend to try something else with them?

    Yes, I just figure that I'll grow them along with the others in a highland environment. They should be tolerant of the low night Tbs. I hope.

    I don't recall it ever being toasty at three-thousand feet at night -- anywhere; and in San Francisco, it is almost always in the low fifties . . .
