    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.
    I was always under the impression they needed more light than that, but yours look great! What are temps/humidity normally like?

    HC, those helis are looking good! So much growth in three months' time. I've recently decided to give this genus a shot... I can only hope mine looks half as good as yours in three months.

    What are your temps? Do you feed/fertilize?

    Temps vary depending on season. All my highland plants are moved at night to experience temps in the 50's, but daytime may be between 75 and 90 F. And I feed all pitcher plants with Maxsea.

    I'm very sorry for getting your thread derailed, a simple pm would have saved a lot of nonsense here.

    Beautiful Heliamphora Hc!

    I think there's enough pitchers to equal 3 plants.....also, see that big, ripped pitcher at the top of the pic? Was the largest pitcher on the plant, and when it opened it...literally exploded.

    het x minor put up another even larger pitcher, and of course my luck it caught on something and exploded as well.... typical...

    Meanwhile, H. nutans is doing very well. I discovered the hairs on the inside look golden in the right light...
