    Heli just arrived

    Hello, all. I took the plunge and this arrived yesterday. Hope I don't kill it!



    Cheers,

    I've always wanted a Heliamphora. As Maiden has stated, be careful with it! These are difficult plants.

    +1 very nice specimen.... mine got manhandled by the angry customs agents.
    One pitcher and one root survived... slow road back,
    1 year later, now got two pitchers.... but no complaints, she is alive and kicking

    You won the pilosa lottery and you're experienced heli grower, cant wait to see her in all her fuzzyness

    Very nice! I'm in the same boat as Av8tor. So what did you get for the other 250 euros?

    H. exappendiculata (Apacapa T.), Nepenthes clipeata, N. attenboroughii and N. nigra. The N. attenboroughii was almost DOA, so
    Andreas will send a replacement. The other Heliamphora looks a bit rough; it has adult pitchers. In hindsight, an immature plant would probably travel better.
    As always, Andreas stands behind all his plants, and will replace any losses.

    (I've had a few Heliamphora for years. Nepenthes and a few Sarracenia have been my main focus, but Butch's posts have really gotten me excited about trying
    more Helis. Plus, my wife and I are moving to a new house, and it has a cool basement where Heliamphora may be happier than in the outdoor greenhouse.
