    Heliamphora outdoors?

    Good evening, terraforums.

    I wouldn't mind getting into heliamphora and I wanted to know if any species could be kept outside part of the year in my conditions. During the hottest part of the year it gets about 90-95 degrees Fahrenheit and drops to about 80-75 at night. Are there any heliamphora that can tolerate these conditions? If not, what do I need to give them their proper conditions? Thanks.

    Reportedly any combination of minor, heterodoxa and ionasii should work, also Heliamphora "Tequila". I can confirm Tequila and minor x heterodoxa are quite heat tolerant. The biggest problem I find is a real preference for humidity.

    Average humidity during that time of year here is about 80%, so that's not a problem. I can make a terrarium for winter to keep them humid. How tall are these hybrids?

    I don't think that any Heliamphora would be able to survive those day temps if it doesnt drop below 70 at night.

    Hmm... perhaps I should wait for some more opinions on the matter.
    Av8tor1, where are you?

    I think Zu has successfully grown H. minor on her magic patio in uber high temps and desert low RH
    But I know others who have tried repeatedly only to fail,

    Can one survive.... yeah, would the failure rate be higher... yeah,
    I can tell a difference in mine at 80f

    I might be able to set up a small terrarium in my basement. It doesn't get above 80 degrees there, so I could keep it cooler with relative ease. In your experience, how heat tolerant are the hybrids mentioned above? If you grow them of course.

    I would choose tequila, it can be beautiful and is very hardy
