    Thanks for the input! I think these are some of the most beautiful plants out there. I am so happy to have some.

    My plants are definitely settling in. Here are some pictures I took this evening.

    Is that dark shadow new growth? I sure hope so. It does seem to be getting bigger. H. heterodox X ionasii

    I would snip off all the dead plant matter. You don't want a fungal infection kicking in. Also IMO that does look like a newly forming leaf inside the last one. It looks like your plants suffered some dehydration. Did you use the "zip lock baggy method" to acclimate them to lower humidity? Regardless it looks pretty beat up but looks like it'll make it.

    Ngantnier, they had a hard trip to me. From Germany to a local friend as part of a group order. Sadly I was out of town when they arrived, so it was close to another week before I could plant them.

    I will take your advise and trim the brown off. Thanks!

    Be careful when trimming Helis, the pitchers are very fragile and easy to break.

    Thanks. I was careful. Everything is now trimmed up. The trim lets the new growth show nicely.

    Of the six plants that I have, all but two have visible active growth. The other two are both green, so I am confident that they are alive, I just haven't gotten to see the new growth yet.

    Here are some updated photos of the plants. Most re doing very well, although a couple are being slow to recover.
