LOL.... I hear ya Joe,
tsk tsk tsk , you old hound dog you....
I've transplanted my H. minor 3 times in the last year or so, up till now. It doesn't seem to slow down in growth, actually it seems to put out bigger pitchers in my experience
I never water it (the soil stays constantly moist from the high humidity in the terrarium) and it grows fine for me, temps are 25 C during the day and 20 during the night, sometimes it cools down to about 17C.
<Heli> How are you guys losing your hamatas?

LOL guys! A big head indeed .
Yeah, I have the pseudo-terrarium setup. It's not a true terrarium - I closed in two shelves on my 5-tier Lowes grow rack. One shelf is for Nepenthes, one shelf is for Heliamphora. Helis in general seem to be easy to grow. The biggest issues are providing enough lighting and humidity. Temperatures could be an issue as well, these plants really won't tolerate much over 86F or so. I like to grow mine fairly dry, most people would have a heart attack if they saw how much I water (or don't water) my plants. I use cypress mulch with about 30% LFS. I water about once a day to once every other day.
Where do we go when we just don't know,
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
And when will we learn to control?
