    Talking Heliamphora minor

    Hello everyone! This is my first Heliamphora. I'd been a lil apprehensive about getting one because i'd read they were difficult plants to keep. I've had her for around a week and she already has 2 new pitchers growing. I hope I can keep her alive until shes big and beautiful as the plants i've seen around the forum.

    you're off to a great start. the nectar spoons will become bigger and more developed over time.

    Thank you amphirion. If I can keep her alive I plan on adding a H nutans to my collection also.

    I have a Heliamphora Minor growing in extreme conditions and mine are producing nectar spoons (they apparently don't produce nectar spoons if the conditions aren't correct)


    I think they have a bad reputation of being difficult to grow but it depends on your growing conditions. If you have the correct conditions, they are an unkillable beast.

    If you keep the temps cool, the light bright, and a air humid, it should do well. H.minor is prolly the easiest heli there is.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Some find hybrids to be even more forgiving of less-than-ideal conditions & H. pulchella seems to grow even faster than H. minor in my conditions ...

    Well..the only hybrid I have is heterodoxa x minor..and it does seem like a faster grower than pure minor, but not necessarily easier.
