    Thanks! Still waiting for my two other seedling-stage plants to move it though....

    All scientific names, plant and animal are written so that they are intrinsically both singular and plural, without changing their spelling. They are formulated that way, so that no changes to their spelling are necessary, nor permitted. In other words, the suffix "s" is not needed, nor permitted, since it modifies the spelling, in this case, of the genus (generic) name. Even that much is not permitted by the rules of botanical nomenclature.

    In this instance, the genus is Heliamphora, and there is yet, no genus, Heliamphoras, as the addition of the suffix "s", would imply.

    An easy place to read about these rules, is here -> RHS plant name guide. The Royal Horticultural Society has assembled an easy to understand guide.

    Joseph, I think it is quite clear he was referring to the multiple plants in plural, no need to delve deep into the nomenclatural details on this.......

    tje25, they are under a single bulb T5, don't recall the exact wattage, and probably about 6-8" away from the light. During winter they also get sunlight through the window though, so that probably is adding to the great color they have currently.
