    Interesting hairy scape on the pulchella! My only blooming plants have so far shown bare scapes. They're blooming at about 2" tall with only a few adult pitchers, so maybe they just haven't hit puberty yet haha

    Thanks for the very kind words all,

    jrod, I think its one of the defining characteristics of H. pulcella, here is a quote from A. Fleischmann after an expedition to the tepuis in 2009

    "...The nodding flowers of H. pulchella consist of four (rarely five) tepals. The inflorescence scape and pedicel are always densely pubescent. This is another good character to distinguish it from H. minor (which has a glabrous scape, just the pedicels are pubescent, too)..."

    But the heli waters are so muddy IMHO

    Looking good, Av!

    Have you been crossing any of those flowers?

    It would be fascinating to see if H. 'Tequila' would produce fertile seed, with the "Heli-waters" as muddy as they seem...
