    Finally one of my helis is getting some color now that it's maturing a bit. Prior pitchers were mostly green, but at least some red is showing up.

    Thanks, Butch. I'm definitely putting a lot of work into them. They're pretty hard to come by.

    Interesting. Wasn't aware of this at all. And butch seeing how red you get yours..one day I'll spring for some t5's. It's the vibrant reds that makes helis so attractive imo.

    I've been watching & enjoying two Heli's this week - so I thought I'd share. The 1st is a H. folliculata from Murosipan Tepui.

    The plant itself is a beast and is growing like a weed in the cooler temps --- but has been growing asymmetrically so it isn't too photogenic (& add in remnant tricho stains from the Heli-master himself). However, I really like how different the pitchers are from other species.


    The closeup of one of the newer pitchers really shows how different this species is (imho).


    ... and when you look closely at the nectar spoon, you can see the back-bulge, alien-head-thing going on ...


    I'm including the next plant, H. sarracenioides, because it just put up it's 1st non-juvie pitcher. I am pretty surprised at how it changed completely from horizontal pitchers to upright with no real transition. Also, the difference in size is pretty impressive. It also seems to have more of a nectar spoon than I've seen in pics of this species - although I suspect that will fade as it transitions to fully adult form...


    Pitcher close-ups...
    All the best,
    Ron

    Most beautiful! Got to love that little nectar spoon! I find myself in awe of how fast H. folliculata grows now that my room temps are also dipping.

    Awesome pics as usual!
