    Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionassii, growing on kitchen windowsill

    Hi,

    I have owned a Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionassii for some time and it has been placed in various location, but always under artificial lighting until recently. It now resides on my kitchen windowsill we no artificial light. It has been there for a few weeks now and since moving it has come into flower. Today was a sunny so I took the opportunity to take the plant outside to take a few pictures. The plant looks a little worse for wear due to the location prior to moving it to the kitchen windowsill being far from ideal for light levels; however, as you can see there is now a new pitcher developing...

    Ah, the benifits of living in a cool. humid, rainy climate.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Approximately 12 hours/day this time of year.

    I don't bother with misting but Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionassii is one of the most easy hybrids.

    Cool, looks like wax because the flowers are so reflective. It also adds to the illusion because the pitcher on the left looks cracked.
