    new arrivals....

    so my 4 south american beauties arrived at my doorstep yesterday, and i decided what the heck, im taking them out for a breather, might as well take quick pics of them...

    H. ciliata- the smallest and youngest of the bunch. cute and fun sized.


    H. colina- the girl you thought was okay looking from photos...way more attractive in person.


    H. purpurescens- the "olga" of the bunch. the largest out of the four. looking forward to the well developed nectar spoons in the future!


    H. sp. "akopan" - if N. campanulata were a heliamphora, it would be "akopan" in my opinion, probably the most attractive of the bunch, and because of her beauty, probably bashed and abused by her three tripmates along with every other CP shipped from Wistuba to the US, hence the shattering (yes. shattering) of her newest pitcher. T.T


    looking forward to watching all 4 grow. thanks for taking a look!

    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I really enjoy watching the pitchers morph from small juvenile through the mysterious adolescence to the usually predictable & wonderful adult. Just like with people, some plants seem to jump from kid to adult in one quick move (like the guys who could grow a beard in 9th grade) and others who take their time and slowly (ever so painfully slowly in some cases ... ) transform into the final adult morph ...
