    Only one of my Heliamphora flowers set seed...
    The seed pot contained 15 seed, I have sown 10 of them on peat imidiatly and 5 of them on pure milled sphagnum 2 weeks later.
    Germination rate seems to be very high (~80%), but no seedling has build a single leaf till now.



    and closer... (not the best quality, because you can see the grain of the film at this magnification)

    Some people say (Wistuba) that Heliamphora is "pre-female", which means that you must transfer pollen from an old flower to a newly opening one.
    (amazingly the only flower that set seed was the first(&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] flower ?!?)

    I don't know if it one plant is enough, I had two flowering plants and I transferred pollen (not easy to release) between them. But at the time this flower was open, teh other plant didn't flower yet.

    It seems that extrem bright light and heat(!?&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] is necessary for seed set. (this flower had grown only 10cm under my 70 W lamp, and after that I removed the plant from there)

    time from flower to seed : ~ 3 months
    germination time : ~ 3 weeks
