As a result of my recent move, I'm taking a shot at growing some Heliamphora in the greenhouse,
instead of under lights in the basement. The basement is still an option, however. It's no secret
that the problem is getting enough light in the greenhouse without "cooking" the plants.
It's been a learning experience, and I have some modifications in mind. My first change will be
replacing the wood slats with egg crate, to increase air circulation from below the plants.
Most of the plants have been in the greenhouse less than a month. The bagged plants are recent
arrivals from AW.
Cheers and good growing,
I like the nectar on the H. parva spoon. This is an extreme crop, so quality isn't the best.
John in Oz has a great track record of growing Heliamphora in greenhouses..... it can definitely be done, think he has a youtube channel
parva = juicy lucy lol
Thanks for the info, Av8tor. I'll search on youtube.

Thank you all for the kind remarks.
Well, here's a little update.
This just opened pitcher (left) on H. parva has a much larger nectar spoon and a bit more color. I'm hopeful conditions are improving:
And, some fuzzy sock porn...New pitcher is appearing on this recent arrival - H. minor var. pilosa (Luna):
Yeah flower stalk!
Now i hate you Paul, you and your stupid awesome plants :P
