    yayay, finally Heli success!

    Well, I've had this guy (Heliamphora heterodoxa) for a months now and nothing happened. As expected since it was sitting on a windowsill.

    I finally decided to build a terrarium and it's only the third day and I noticed just now there is new growth!! I sorta screeched and started jumping with joy. Just couldn't believe it!!!

    I'm going to assume the Heli likes its new home. I thought it was a good price, 30 some dollars

    Helis are slow growers. A perfectly healthy plant may sometimes take a month and a half or more between opening a pitcher and the next bud even showing. Other times, new growth is constantly visible and just takes forever.....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Ya, that's what I've read. So I was super shocked that it'd just pop a new growth point so quickly. It must love the terrarium.

    it's kinda crazy, only four days and the new growth point is already much bigger. I wonder if it's partially because I bought this one from XXXXXXX at their store. I've heard people say buying from reputable sellers can reduce the transitional shock to the plant's new home. I didn't want my Heli shipped so I drove there.

    either way, I am happy ^_^
