    Nice link, thanks for sharing utri

    Edit: After the first read, i disagree with many points in the article. For example:
    "Heliamphora requires fertilization to grow well"

    ?? Its far to be true. And for a newbie, reading this can lead to a dead plant.

    This plant was a single leaf cutting last year. With no fertilizer. Even in the juvenil stade. And my plant was not yellow like on the pictures i saw in the article. Do you think my plant will be better with fertilizer ?

    Yeah, John's a bad*****.
    I am kind of stoked, I recently got some heli seeds from a trading partner. I have not started them yet but am really looking forward to it. I have never grown from seed

    Thanks for the referrence, I am not sure I have spoken with Butch before but it is good to know who is growing Helis. I am going to be hitting people up for photos pretty soon here for a side project.

    (edit) Oh wait, Av8tor, arn't you Butch?

    Alright, I picked up a big 432 cubic-inch (seven-liter) block of long-fiber Sphagnum. Could I just plant my Heliamphora minor in it, 100% moss?

    Also, quoted by the article, bareroot Heliamphora should be bagged for a month. Didn't someone say they need circulation? And would a terrarium be an adequate substitute for a bag?

    yes. Av8tor is Butch. he's also releasing a detailed heliamphora growing article hopefully in the near future via the CPN.

    From my experience, 100% sphagnum moss work pretty well.

    For the air circulation in the bag, open the bag everydays, this will provide ventilation, but for myself, i use a terrarium at almost 100%. So for me, yes you can use a terra as substitute.

    Oh, and Amphirion too is a very experienced heliamphora grower!

    The reason for the bag is just to acclimate them. I have; however, done just fine using a terrarium with high humidity (near 100% RH).

    I have not tried pure LFS. I suspect it would be fine, personally I feel more comforable with something in there to open the media up like perlite or pumice. That's just me. I would be more inclined to trust LFS over dense peat mixes though.
