    Hi Carl,
    What conditions was your heterodoxa x ionasii growing in? Its really frustrating losing these bigger older plants just as they are developing their adult characteristics. And them its back to the start and another 6-10 year wait! Same when I lost my villosa last year- won't be around by the time my new tiny plant gets that big!! The more you learn the less you seem to know!

    Judging from a few recent losses I think they have entered into a pact!! They could not stand the thought of another winter!

    Last week my big nutans giant collapsed along with another tequila! Them today I find my big woody tatei going limp & shrivelled. NOOOOO!





    Both the nutans & tequila were completely rotten at the base- though a few pitchers were still looking good. So did not pick up the problem as quickly as I should. The tatei had looked really good on Monday and had intended to photograph it. With this plant the base of the plant & roots still looked ok. And even after cutting up have still to find any rot. I will pot up these two sections of the woody stem and see how they go. None of these plants were together and particulary the tatei had been growing well.

    hello

    From my personnal experience, its a water+light problem.

    When i look at your picture, your heli do not get enough light. The plant is very green.

    Light = energy, so when you dont throw enough light, the plant cannot deal with minor infections and this can take over your heliamphora.
    So for me, your issue is clearly a lack of light+lack of ventilation.

    Of course, like i said, i speak from my own experience.
    Feel free to disprove!
