    Pyro,
    They are growing in a mix of peat and german sphagnum, I may decide to move them to straight sphagnum later but hate repotting them and throwing them into temporary shock.
    Of course I do not care for them like everyone says you should, not real high humidity, no cool water ever, they are growing in a tank with alot of neps. But they continue to grow and divide and flower so I'll not complain.
    I have been told before that the ionassi may be the Ilu Tepui species, I will check out the link and see if I can tell.

    Thanks.

    pthiel, the link won't help. All Sun pitchers look almost the same with juvinile pitchers. I just posted the link to show you how the Ilu Tepui species looks as an adult. I have never seen one in cultivation with mature pitchers.

    I dont think humidity is as important as everyone says for Heliamphora. my greenhouse is low humidity in summer, but they thrive! I just make sure I harden them off if they have been growing in terrariums etc.

    dont have a meter, but windows & doors open all summer which strips away a lot of moisture

    Hi,

    they will turn more redish and develop bigger "lids" if grown under intensive light...

    May H. minor x heterodoxa could get even more light...

    (btw, today I have sown my first Helimaphora seed. Now I only have to wait 10 years for big plants :-) )
