    Yes i store pollen; right now i have h.minor var minor and minor var pilosa.

    I wait folliculata pollen by mail from a friend, i wanted it for my burgundy-black. The flower will open very soon.

    Congrats for your flowering nutans, but i dont know if its legal to ship pollen in another country.. You can do nutans xself.

    Thanks Kat :-)
    Yes!
    Its black slime mold, harmless to the plants, but so beautiful to see.

    They eat dead part of the plant, and other fungus. In fact, it help the plant. Its the first time i see that in my setup. Spores was probably present in my peat.

    Nature is beautiful

    Dead helis pitchers become bendable and soft with time, specially if you grow your helis in high RH%. Just bend them a lil and cut them at the base, about 1 or 2 inches from the soil. But dead pitchers look quite nice on helis, it bring a natural 'tepuy looking'. I only trim them twice a year, when i change my setup for winter or summer.

    I don't think that I've seen some of these pictures on FTC... Absolutely spectacular plants as usual! Would it be possible for you to give us some pictures of your entire setup? Plants, lights, and all other equipment?

    Hello Katya, thanks for your kind words.

    In fact, i have a cold room just for my plants. I control every parameters in there, like ventilation, temperatures, relative humidity and lighting. I dont have a picture of my entire setup right now, but if you have specific questions please throw me a PM

    I'll take one. Not as beautiful as yours it was mostly dead pitchers when i received it and after some pitchers grew and during acclimation the tops of the pitchers got a bit crispy and dry sooo since I've removed the dead pitchers the middle is pretty bare and the pitchers are all scattered and elongated and ugly..ahrg! Hold on gotta upload a photo






    A few months back the pitchers were grown beautifully, but one hot day while i was acclimating them to outside on my sun porch the pretty pitchers got all crispy and many shrivled up from the heat cause i forgot to close the bag half way after i watered them...ahrg! But the middle has pretty much always been bare after removing the dead pitchers after i got suck of seeing them ..now its ugly as ever and its my only heli to study soo id like it to look somewhat nice lol

    Sorry for posting in yr thread
