    I really want to see your setup sometime.

    The Heliamphora nutans x ionassi is my fav.

    Thanks for the photos!

    Gorgeous! What is your preferred media? Is that live sphagnum all the way through or is it just a top dressing?

    Yes, they are grown outside and receive full morning light and, especially, cold nights . . .

    Thanks . . .

    The compost is composed of live sphagnum, pumice, and perlite. Some growers swear by various grades of orchid barks but I have far better results with the moss . .

    Beautiful plants as always!
    How do you protect your plants from frost when they are outside? Or do you bring then in once winter really kicks in?
    Certainly your growing conditions produces some of the best colour I have seen!

    cheers

    Thanks all . . .

    The plants are only sheltered when frost is predicted and then generally by fabric intended to protect roses. In Northern California (the San Francisco Bay Area), we don't experience any sustained freezing; and it is generally a surprise when we have to scrape our windshields.

    Today, on 2 December we have expected highs of 14˚C and lows of 7.2˚C -- perfect for Heliamphora and highland Nepenthes . . .
