    Now, let me start by saying "I really don't know."

    But, if you read D'Amato and Wistuba, they all say that many species of Heliamphora live in very thin soils--almost comprised entirely of their own brown and decaying pitchers. Could it possibly be that after a while, Helios start casting off pitchers as an evolutionary response to these thin soil conditions?

    Just a thought I had--but I may be missing the point entirely [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . That often happens to me...

    --later! i like to play with things awhile...before annhiliation--

    Rosie is right. Avoid cutting of green parts of Heliamphora! Do always wait until they are brown and shriveled up. Heliamphora are prone to fungal disease living in the soil which easily enter through a wound.

    P.S.: During dying back the plant is able to get some of the energy back, it put into the leaf during growing. (i.e. Chlorophyll)

    Thanks for the hint Dustin, fixed my error. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Yes, that's what I meant!! I know there was something like that, that's me all over my knowlage is decidedly half-arsed!

    Slightly off the subject, I recently read an extremly interesting thread about adding milk to Sarra pitchers to encorage growth, everyone seemed to have pretty good results, including myself. What thoughts do people have on trying this on Helli's? I'd just go ahead and try it myself but I've only got two and I've only just nursed them back to health from the brown pitcher problem so I'd like a bit of advice before I give it a go!!
