    Nice hair buddy, well done!!

    For myself, i feed it with DBW each week, and as you can see in my picture, the results are just amazing.

    I wrote an article on ICPS website about this.

    Anyways, its a very nice plant you got there !

    Paul,

    woohoo, very nicely done!!
    Most minor and some minor hybrids need regular feeding more than the other species...

    You would think it would be the other way around, but they just do...
    FWIW, I don't know of any Heliamphora that doesn't respond well to regular feedings...

    I'm pretty stoked to see this:

    Thank you, Butch and Francois.

    Butch, right now I'm using a dilute foliar feeding (Maxsea) on most plants. When I get a chance, I'm going to try the fish pellets.
    Your encouragement is most appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Paul

    Maiden,

    I'm still waiting to see my plant's true pilosa characteristics to develop....
    I have to admit, sometimes I wonder.... but others have told me that it will fuzz up eventually
    As much as it cost, if it doesn't fuzz up by end of summer, I'll alert Andreas to a possible issue.

    Thanks for the kind offer, maybe when it warms up a bit we can do a little trading.

    Butch

    Strange.

    All my new h.pilosa pitchers are yellowish fuzzy pitchers, even with massive lighting. I cannot bring them to red coloration like your plant.

    Also, your pilosa have no nectar spoon ?

    Its hard to see because of the lighting, but this plant is very hairy. I will take better pictures later this week.

    Butch, after a talk with andreas, i start to think your pilosa is from cerro la luna, and the one i grow is from auyan.
