    It is a very robust species and gets massive, plus it looks incredible.

    Beautiful, Heli!

    Do you grow these on your windowsill? I just started growing Helis and 1 of the plants is developing it's first mature pitcher! But for me, these plants are slooooow growing.

    I do not grow mine on a windowsill because it gets way to hot in the summer. However I know some people who grow helis on windowsills in milder climates. That nutans looks very happy, and I love the ceph in the background.

    Awesome plant

    Nice photos and great growing (*golf clap*). I grow my heli in the basement in a humid terrarium. I only have one, H. minor but it's growing fairly fast and is sending up two new pitchers which I'm excited about.


    here's some pics:


    these are some pretty cool closeups of the dewdrops in the unopened pitchers:



    and finally a shot down the pitcher:

    This question goes to Heli and Biozest:

    So if not grown in the widowsill (Heli) and grown in the basement (BioZest), why type of lights do you have them under?

    Mine get supplimental lighting from two 32W T8s. Otherwise its filtered sun at best through the dinning room window. Both of your plants look so healthy! Good work!
