    H. neblinae (Cerro Neblina) RIP :(

    Alas my H. neblinae (Cerro Neblina) has succumbed to winter stress.

    Having grown the plant from a tiny juvenile plant to one that produced some of the largest pitchers and flowers of my Heli it is not a good day!

    From this





    to this-



    Ironically before I cane across it I was/still am concerned by my H. hispida. And a few of my Neps have gone downhill as well/dead. Hate winter!!

    Sigh!

    Oh I'm so sorry

    I have that happen every winter too... I just lost an N.eddie, N.hamata hairy, N.argentii, and I think I might have an N.jacq on the way out too

    I lost 2 Macs this growing season....definitely bummed about that. But to lose a full grown plant that you grew from a tiny 2 inch plant.... Man. Thats negative pressure dude....sorry for your loss.

    IMO...
    In winter's cooler temps & shorter days,
    a plants metabolism slows.
    When that happens, a reduction in moisture is needed,
    lest the plant...unable to utilize all that moisture...rots!

    At least that is what I have seen happen
    and when I reduced the watering in winter,
    indeed less casualities!

    Perhaps it might be worth a try.
    [It does feel like I am allowing the plant to nearly-dry more,
    as growth slows... but then that is why less water is needed in the 1st place!]
    NOT dry! But then, less water!

    Good luck! And sorry to see your losses, but then that is how we learn.

    (The best way to learn what works, is to find out what doesn't!)
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    That's terrible, I feel sorry for your lost . What a beautiful plant that was.
    Well, see it in the positive sign that you can replace plants but not humans, what I mean is that you can always grow one from seed or as a young plant again, or simply purchase a big one.

    Good luck!

    Bill, Sorry for your loss (& Thez also - wow!!)

    In another thread, I mentioned that my H. pulchella - Amuri Tepui was looking 'off'. Since then, it cascaded downhill & died about two weeks ago (1st Heli I've lost). In better days earlier this year ...

    I don't believe that my plant's demise is related to winter - as all of my HL'ers are loving the cool temps & growing like mad...
    All the best,
    Ron
