    The Het x Minor is growing in LFS mixed with perlite, topped with live sphag, the Pulchella is in a mix of live sphag and perlite topped with more live sphag. Both sit in dishes with a little water in them... I'll periodically dump water in the pots until the dishes flood.

    Awesome Helis! Sorry if this is a noob question but how can you get the pulchellas to get a red and purple color because it looks like yours is already starting to get some of that nice coloration! Do all of them get that color if provided the right environment?

    Im pretty sure it just has to do with spectrum and intensity of the light.. Mine is dang green compared to wild pulchella.

    If only mine looked like this.. *le sigh*
