    My moss collection and some helis.

    Most of my heli's are still tiny but the moss is nice! LOL.

    First off is my pot of H. 'tequila' there are 4 of them in there, good luck finding them. I think it may be time to mow. The moss orginates from Meadowview.


    Next is my slightly larger H. heterodoxa, still mostly moss though. Not sure where this moss originates from, but it is pretty I think. There are a few different types of moss in there as well.


    Now for the largest heli in my collection one of my H. heterodoxa x ionasii. I got these from Xantius when he moved to NZ. Sadly only one of the flowers on both plants survived. I pollenated the one flower when it arrived and it is still growing but it doesn't appear to have pollenated. Oh well, maybe next time.


    Hope you like them.

    Nice! That last cross is pretty wild, it almost looks like it is reverting back to non-carnivorous leaves.

    Nice moss!

    Thanks. The variation on my two H. heterodoxa x ionasii is pretty extreme IMO.

    In my own non-scientific comparison...
    The other has the normal heli look and is more tubular with a defined nectar spoon and is more hairy. This one has a wide mouth and is pretty waxy in appearance. When I get a sec I will post a pic of the other H. heterodoxa x ionasii in my collection for comparison.

    Edit:
    Here is my other heterodoxa x ionasii

    Nice plants man. If I may, I would suggest that you up the lighting quite a bit and you will be amazed at improvements.

    Yes. I do need to invest in some more lighting. On my to do list.

    EDIT: OH, I just realized that you probably think they are growing where they sit in the picture. They do not grow where the pic was taken. I grow them in a tank with alot more light than you see in the pic. But your point is still valid tha it is still not enough.

    Here is an older pic of my grow space. They grow under 2 T1 tubes with an additional 2 CFL bulbs.
