    My first Heliamphoras!

    So I just got my first Heliamphora plants. I am very excited. Currently they are growing with my other plants under flourescent lights, but I will be building a more specialized growing area for them with LED lights and ebb and flow watering.

    So far the plants look like they are settling in except for one of the hybrids which has lost all rigidity. I am not writing it off yet, but it isn't looking good right now.

    My plants are now in an ebb and flow setup although I still need to get it on a timer. I currently plug it in a couple times a day. Lighting is currently with 100 6400k LED modules.

    I currently see new growth on at least half of the plants. So far so good!

    It took my H. minor a LONG time to start growing again, though the H. heterodoxa recovered pretty quickly. Be patient, they'll pull through!

    I grew my plants under 6400k T5's originally, and they're under 4000k LEDs now. It doesn't seem to matter much.
