    I've heard people complain about Heliamphora being the slowest carnivorous plant in the world (after Nepenthes Villosa), but yours is really growing fast. I wish I had the proper conditions to grow one

    Thank all of you for your comments. The fast growth speed also makes me surprised. I grow it under CFL. The light density on the top of them is about 25000 lux. The light bulb turn on for 16 hours. Daytime temperature is 80F with humidity 70%; night temperature is 60F with humidity above 90%.

    That's awesome. I really want to try my hand at growing helis, but I know my conditions aren't exactly ideal (my temps are more like 80-85 during the day with 55% humidity; 65-70 overnight with 85-90% humidity). But darn, those things are just so pretty!

    Here's a silly question: did all that live sphagnum sprout over the three weeks that elapsed between the first and second shots, or did you add it?? I'm trying to sprout my own from dried LFS and so far... no luck.

    I just added the live moss after I took the first picture. But I really succeeded in sprout live moss from dried LFS. I put some dried LFS under the bottom of pots of my VFT and sundews, and the green live moss grew out from the holes of the pots! Very strange
