H. collina(Venamo) × H. minor var. pilosa Cerro de la Luna juvenile pitchers showing some nice colouration.
Wow these are absolutely gorgeous.
Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly
Those will be stunning when mature. Did you make the cross yourself?
Pretty cool plant carl!
By the way, the name of this mini tepuy is cerro la luna. Cerro de la luna is a well know restaurant.
'De' is a french word, nothing to do with the mountain
There is a popular EU CP website that has Heliamphora minor var. pilosa - ´Cerro de la Luna' listed too, so maybe it emanates from there?
The only i know is carniplants. On the page you provide(wiki), you can read cerro la luna. From the french side, its easy to see the misstake, because its a mix of languages and it doesnt make sense.
But i think you touch a point here, its a common misstake.
From what I know, the CLL clone is not yet on the market. This polish nursery sell the plant under the wrong name.
Maybe other growers have more info.
But no matter the location, your plant is amazing. Pilosa hybrids are very rare.
