    I found that having the humidifying disc makes it so I never have to water which makes things much easier. And I don't cool it at all but I do keep my apartment at exactly 70F constantly year round. The key is to have the top of the tank completely sealed except for maybe one small crack to allow some airflow but not much, which can be a pain sometimes. I only open up the tank about once every 2 weeks or so to get some fresh air in the tank. So far the only heliamphora I've had trouble with is H. minor, everything else has been super easy.

    Looks great, that heterodoxa x minor put on some nice growth. What are they potted in? Looks like sphagnum and perlite?

    Mason,

    some great looking helis, very nice pic of the parva x folliculata, they are really showing themselves as an excellent hybrid.....
    Hopefully we end up with "parva" that has the adult size of "folliculata"

    woot woot, nicely done indeed!
