Good news guys. We speak to andreas last night, the 250€ addition is removed. You can buy a minor var pilosa without adding any other plants to your order

What (besides exterior hairs) makes var. pilosa so valuable compared to normal H. minor? Rarity? I'm sorry if this should be obvious, I don't grow many helis other than typical H. minor.

interior hair with exterior hair and rarity....
There were rumors of pilosa and parva floating around for years, some said they were extinct due to unsuccessful poaching attempts etc etc
So when they did become commercially available, for the heli grower they were "holy grail" lost species.
It really is unique as far as Heliamphora species goes, but at the price they bring they are definitely a collectors item though.
