    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

    I'm really looking forward to the first mature pitcher to see how colourful and hairy it is. I bought the plant from a German grower.

    Thanks for the advice. I bought it from the grower with that name. I guess it must be a common mistake, as Wikipedia has references to Cerro de la Neblina: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distrib...of_Heliamphora

    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.

    Very nice Carl, do you think it naturally clumps like that or was it cloned in vitro?

    Hi Mike,

    I'm not sure what is responsible for its habit. Looks like there will be material to divide though when it matures a little.
