    Heliamphora minor

    What a challenge this plant is !

    I have to provide to this genus some awesome and freaks culture conditions !
    -90% relative humidity 24/24
    -100watts large spect. T5 sunblaster very close to the plants.
    -23C to 27C day temp
    -17C to 22C night temp
    Of course, i use a A/C.

    And i feed them with very very tiny pieces of bloodworm each month.
    The rest of the time they catch they own food... I presume

    How do you use AC? Do you have a duct from AC blowing onto the plants when AC is on or is it something more elaborate?

    They look great Maiden.

    Im definitely no heli expert, but you might want to find a way to get those night temperatures cooler on a consistant basis. 22C (~72F) at night is still very warm

    I think you must have a fussy one. Mine just grows on a windowsill.

    @Heli, To be honest I don't know the temperatures, as I don't monitor it. Aberdeen is North East Scotland, on the North sea coast, so we don't get particularly hot weather.

    @maiden: take it how you will, but i suspect that your minor clone has a bit of heterodoxa in it based on the formation of the nectar spoon. minors are definitely more bent over and slightly dome shaped. the elongation and shape of the nectar spoon indicate some sort of heterodoxa influence.
    the good news is that this means that the plant will take a wider range of temperatures and will be easier to grow.
