    sorta would depend on species, but that is the range most cited as recommended max..... now as far as seed germination goes me dunno, not much specific info to be found on heli seed germination.

    (I hope this community thread with multiple growers using common genetic stock provides some good answers to what are best practices.... )

    I give the podium to amp and david....

    @cindy: i've heard temp ranges around 83-85F are ideal for a number of heliamphora species--some tested under this range included H. exappendiculata, H. "angasima", and H. pulchella. All revealed germination in as little as 2-3 weeks after sown. For me, under highland conditions, the (same species) seed took about a month and a half to germinate.

    @amphirion: Thanks! I guess I could try sowing the seeds in both 75C and 85C.

    Thanks for letting me know about the temperatures. I had no idea they could tolerate and even prefer it that warm. I'm hitting temperatures in the mid 70's now during the day. Not much happening yet.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    I went the cooler route -- highland temperatures, lows in the fifties at night -- with my last batch of seedlings, and grew them alongside my adult plants. Germination took just about four weeks last Summer -- so too those seeds in vitro . . .

    Heliamphora sp. "Angasima"

    Wow! Nice BB! They resemble Sarr seedlings quite a bit at that stage. I guess only time will tell if my temperatures will compliment the Helis seeds.

    Thanks Crissytal -- and I am sure that your temperature ranges will be fine through germination. H. folliculata exists at between 1700 and 2100 meters in the wild -- and falls into sort of an intermediate among the genera.
