    My New Heliamphoras - Wistuba and problem

    I just received three Heliamphoras from Wistuba.

    The problem was I ordered and paid for FOUR. So after contacting Wistuba Iwas told they shipped four to their US distribution in Hagerstown, MD, but they did not send them all to me.
    But I am happy to report that Wistuba said that they will send me the missing plant in their next shipping to the USA in November...

    ANY way here are the photos.

    Heliamphora Heterordex x Nutans

    Heliamphora Chimantensis (Chimanta)
    It was crushed a little.

    he he....I ordered a het x nutans and chimantensis from him as well, It came yesterday.... Check my heliamphora set up thread, I have pictures as well. You should bag the plants up so that they have 100% humidity.

    your media seems to be quite on the dry side....
    do keep in mind that your plants are relatively fragile and not hardened and are prone to osmotic shock and that the main means why which these plants obtain their water is through the roots....

    i would wet your media to the point where it's almost slopping wet, then bag it as suggested....

    great plants though! hope you have fun with them.

    Oh - yes, I had just potted and hadn't watered yet. They are now watered with RO water
    and in one of my terrariums.

    Thank you for the comment!

    next time, you should pre-wet the media first before using it...this will ensure that the media is completely saturated and is capable of catering to your plant's needs....

    I seem to always forget that - thanks.
    I uses a mix of peat, perlite and sand. About a 40-40-20 mix.
