    Hehe...

    Introducing for the first time..

    Heliamphora tatei x unknown




    Seeds sown on milled LFS. From Av's super generous ICPS giveaway!

    I'm thrilled the first germinated, now I just need to keep it from dying!

    Mucho Gracias for the seeds Butch!

    Heli of a Surprise!

    While it got a bit stressful at first, watching how others were having good results with their Av-Heli-Hybrid seed from you Butch, I worried I might have made a mistake in sharing the winnings with others, as all I saw was endless days of inactivity & lack of life!

    Even more-so, as during our excursion eastward to the ICPS gathering (words & pics to come soon)
    I had suffered a loss of my only other, generously shared Heli. Apparently it missed me more than expected & the "sitter" we had couldn't realize the impact of my absence upon it!

    Therefore the inactivity of the Heli seed was even more noticed, as I watched more & more growers boast of their new found success.

    But recently, with much surprise, I happened to check upon my germination-free zone, and found this sight before me:


    [Yes, first few pics are of the two seedlings in their first moments of visible growth, while the last one is of the fatality I mentioned above.] In time I assume it will be replaced by it's 2 new relatives, with even more chance of survival, as its predecessor gave me a more determined motivation, dedication & education, needed to learn to care for them even better than before!

    Many thanks again Butch!



    Well, off to tend to their needs, along with a few other worthwhile CP endeavors I have been deligently working over. (It is times like this that help me realize why I do!) Oh what a hobby!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Woohoo, congrats Paul...

    I must admit, when you told me you hadn't had any germination I was starting to worry. This is most excellent news indeed!!
    Ummmm hate to hear you lost the H. neblinae. It looks like it was becoming a nice plant too.... oh well, nothing another division can't cure.
    I'm sure someone has a spare hiding somewhere come spring.

    ;-)

    And a big congrats to you too Corners, looking very good there mate
    I think we as a group have shown that Heliamphora germination is easily done.
