    I dunno either. Heliamphora are definitely flowering plants:

    (emphasis mine in all cases)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apomixi...wering_plants:
    In flowering plants, the term "apomixis" is commonly used in a restricted sense to mean agamospermy, i.e. asexual reproduction through seeds.

    Vegetative apomixis: In this type "the flowers are replaced by bulbils or other vegetative propagules which frequently germinate while still on the plant". Vegetative apomixis is important in Allium, Fragaria, some grasses, etc.
    http://www.sprrs.usda.gov/apomixis.htm
    Apomixis is an asexual type of reproduction in which the plant embryos grow from egg cells without being fertilized by pollen—the male part of the plant.
    What's going with Heliamphora is the bract develops into a pitcher leaf (fully functional or not). Bracts are neither flowers nor egg cells. Neither are bracts considered any part of the ovule which is where other forms of apomixis occur.

    Leaf pullings from Heliamphora especially if part of the rhizome is included can sometimes root. A bract is form of leaf so I suppose they could root if you pulled one off. I'd rather not risk harming the flower and try for seeds as a method of propagation myself.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    No, it's not, I only brought that up because helilover asked if any other cp's make traps on the flower stalk

    In the first post where I started talking about vegetative apomixis I specifically said "that's not the same as this"

    Congrats...

    I usually have two flowerings a year.... and they seem somewhat independent of temp or photocycle...

    Most heli growers seem to be pretty much in sync whether indoor or out... a winter into spring flowering cycle and then a summer into fall.

    Butch's heli's are so well grown that spontaneous generation occurs from discarded heli soil. LOL.
