Very nice Butch. Which form is that H. folliculata? My one that got chewed up by birds earlier this year is on the compost heap as of yesterday. Took ages to reprout and them went limp and rotted off. I hope your H. minor var. pilosa is still responding positively?
That looks amazing. Going to have to acquire one of those.
Thank you for the kind words....
That is H. folliculata (Murosipam Tepui), Wistuba clone...... really loves to color up even under moderate lighting
Pilosa has one new pitcher, but i need to start giving it tlc again.... i stopped after i saw the new growth and it has stopped growing as a result.
But it is definitely out of any danger it seems...
Hate to hear about your helis, seems many of the main collections have taken a hard hit lately.
You have an amazing collection of Helis. Something I can only hope to achieve one day with my baby Wistuba plants.
What do you do in your TLC protocol that is different from how your other plants are treated? I was thinking about injecting a dilute MaxSea fertilizer solution (1/8 strength?) into the juvenile pitchers but not sure if it will kill the pitchers at that stage.
Exactly what i do Don,
well I do it as a last resort (it has yet to fail, knock on wood)
I dig them up, completely dust the root in trichoderma atrovirde, repot and force feed with eye dropper
(and i mean completely dust, dont be shy!)
Watch where you point that thing!
