    Interesting sarracenioides..... please keep us posted as they progress.

    IMHO these two species rank among the top in performance. They grow fast, they grow colorful and they are some of the most forgiving.

    Having said all that, Ron's results are what one strives for with these species.

    Ho Ho Ho....

    I will. I'm hoping that Herr Wistuba doesn't have a hybrid mixed into his t/c babies .....

    Nice hat btw.

    After chopping off 8-10 stalks from various Heli's, I'm allowing one to flower ('Tequila') - so I can play with some pollination attempts. I'm curious if my lack of patience will once again triumph ...
    All the best,

    Don't think your sarr clone is a possible hybrid just yet... Pitchers seem to be variable as each leaf develops.

    Definitely not time for conclusions (1st few mature pitchers tend to be funky anyway) - just suspicions ...

    A few more Heli's as I try to get pics of all of them into my growlist.

    First up is one of my recent favorites - H. nutans from Kukenam Tepui. Super prominent nectar spoons (with a few bristly hairs) & the pitchers have a dense mat of tiny hairs that make a unique sheen (which naturally I'm unable to really capture with my camera - grrr - although you can kinda see it in the one pic). For some reason, one of the pitchers is more red & the other two are more golden. Also, the fluid dots on the left pitcher aren't from water...



    Next up is probably my largest disappointment - H. huberi. So far, the plant grows well but just has not been special in any way (pic from Aug).


    Next is H. pulchella - Akopan Tepui from Herr Wistuba. While I haven't yet placed it really close to the lights to let it color up, it is an interesting plant.


    Last up is H. pulchella from Amuri Tepui (pics from Oct). This plant was quite close to the lights and colored up nicely. The pitchers are a distinctly different form than the other pulchella locations (so far anyway). The plant has sometimes grown very well and other times has pouted. It's mostly been in a bad mood since I cut it's flower stalk - kinda concerned ...



    Btw - whatever happened to the threadstarter - HeliGoddess??
    All the best,
    Ron
