    New Heliamphoras

    I just my first large carnivorous plant shipment in the mail and potted everyone up. The Heli's are potted in a soil mix containing peat, silica sand, and perlite, and the dome is now closed up with the whole thing sitting on my greenhouse floor so they can slowly acclimate. Unfortunately I didn't receive my add on order which was all the Nepenthes, but I'm willing to settle for this and a whole bunch of new Lecanopteris for now

    Pictured here:
    Heliamphora minor "Burgundy Black"
    Heliamphora hispida
    Heliamphora chimantensis (Chimanta) 2 clones
    Heliamphora heterodoxa
    Heliamphora ionasii
    Heliamphora elongata (Ilu Tepui)
    Heliamphora pulchella (Chimanta Tepui, Venezuela)
    Heliamphora nutans (Yuruani Tepui)
    Heliamphora ciliata
    Heliamphora tatei var. neblinae x hispida (Cerro Neblina, Venezuela)
    Nepenthes flava
    Nepenthes inermis
    Nepenthes lavicola
    Nepenthes lowii
    Nepenthes jamban





    and coming in my missing shipment:
    Nepenthes spathulata (Sumatra)
    Nepenthes hamata x3
    Nepenthes dubia (Gunugn Talamau, West Sumatra)
    Nepenthes macrophylla (Gunung Trusmadi, Borneo)
    Nepenthes rajah (Mt. Kinabalu, Borneo)
    Nepenthes macfarlanei (Genting Highlands, Peninsula Malaysia)
    Nepenthes aristolochioides (Sumatra)
    Nepenthes edwardsiana

    Congrats Bonnie,

    Hellva nice haul, now that is what I call jumping in with both feet :-)
    Young helis can be a challenge, watch out for desiccation.... it can happen overnight.

    That's awesome, Bonnie. It's always refreshing to see experienced growers, who may not be experienced CP growers, jump in and show us what we're doing wrong. Can't wait to see the progress.

    Wow. I don't see myself ever having that many helis. O.O I tried one and that was enough of a disaster for me. :P

    Good looking helis though, I'm sure you'll have better luck than me.

    I dropped mine a few times. :P I'm clumsy. Also I think my media had some parasite. After the heli died I pulled it up and saved the sphagnum moss. Used it later for a dew. It also died soon after. Now I am avoiding using live sphagnum.
