    mobile: very nice helis !! i think you should repot or divise mine had 67 adults urns when i divise him! but i wanted to sell some

    22C at night is the maximum, but this week the night temps are like 17-19, and my helis thrive like crazy.

    peatmoss: yes but the ppl there dont know how to take care of the plants. So the plants are often in bad condition. Be carefull if you buy something there. The pings are ok.

    amphirion: serioustly ?? its not impossible... but its almost impossible for me to know !

    Both maiden and mobile: WOW that's a lot of pitchers!

    mobile: It's hard to grow on a window when you're up in the cold, cold north because in the wintertime, all the moisture from the air is frozen on the ground instead of providing humidity for the plants

    (Again, im learning english, so sorry for the errors)

    Thez_yo: better cold than too hot. You can buy a nanodome 10$, and its a perfect terra for growing heli. You can put your lightning system on the top, at 3 inch from the plant.
    The strong special material hold any heat from the lighning. If needed you can put a heater pad under the terra.

    Amphirion: i call at the montreal botanical garden(where i buy the original plant) and they say i have a h.minor 100% sure.

    Also i looked at many many pictures of minor, heterodoxa and hybrid. And the pictures i provide here dont look like hybrid. Heterodoxa have a bigger spoon, and often darkier(with the intense solar radiations i think).

    Heliamphora heterodoxa have a more bent over spoon, often the spoon can be as big as the pitcher.

    Heliamphora minor have a spoon more vertical, less bent over the pitcher, and more little. And the minor have more hair everywhere.

    But thanks anyway hehe

    I can see the domed nectar spoon wanting to form. I think it just needs perfect conditions to fully form.

    @maiden: please don't think that I am trolling you. Im making my statement based upon my personal experience. Also, please consider the possibility that the information you received about your plant may be outdated. most of the heliamphora species were recently discovered within the last decade or so, and until then, they were considered as either minor, heterodoxa, and nutans. McPherson et al, just wrote a dry but comprehensive book regarding key characteristics of each species. It may be benificial to take a look at it.
