    Red face H. minor tips please:D

    Hello TF members, it's my first time getting an H. minor and it is coming in probably a few days. Some members already gave me tips, but can you guys tell me if this is correct?

    H. minor is somewhat a forgiving specie. It likes bright light with cool temps during the day(up to 70degrees Fahrenheit), with a reasonable temp drop at night(if the day has been warm). It likes to be potted in a well draining mix that can stay moist. If that's the case, would a 1:1:1 peat:gubbler mix(course fir bark and perlite)umice mix work? It loves humid conditions with 70% humidity being optimal, but can be acclimated to lower humidity. When arriving bare-root, it's best to let it soak in water for some minutes. Pitchers and roots are very brittle and is easy to break.

    Thank you TF members

    sounds pretty good to me. I have mine in the basement with a heater(its actually a really big glass cup with an aquarium submersible heater which heats and adds humidity) which I turn off at night for a temperature drop.

    here's some of mine (old pics)





    I might upload more soon.

    Good luck and remember to post if anything goes awry.

    there's an article that's gonna be released by the CPN regarding heliamphora cultivation techniques. i forgot when though, you should keep an eye out on that issue.
