    I grow all my Heliamphora with my Sarracenia at a minimum temperature of 8 degree Celsius. Grow them in a Sarracenia mix, quite open, but with a layer of live sphagnum moss on top, standing in a couple of inches of water in the summer. I use a light coloured pot, as the roots apparently do not like to get too hot. The more sun you give them, the redder they get and the larger the nectar spoon gets!

    This would work in England, where summers aren't really hot and humidity is always relativly high.

    I'm not sure if you can grow Heliamphora side by side to sarracenia in more continental climates.
    What do you do during winter, when Sarracenia needs dormancy ?

    i got 2 of thse for the 2 for 7 doler special, got them yesterday, they look really kinda weird but cool, small and tiny!
    it dosnt look anything like the kinf for the picture on the website =/

    parasuco, what i do, i have it inside during the day and outside at night, cus during day temps get reallyt high, what i do is on hot days or something i made a ice tray full of distilled water, and today i tok 1, broke it and placed it ontop of the soil

    usual propel bottle, fuill it with distiled water, then i put in fridge, and take it out when it needs watering, my cobra lily likes these conditions too, and since i keep it outside in the porch i might keep the 2 heliamphoras outside too

    what do you mean not hot? my greenhouse gets upto 40 C sometimes, and we can often have droughts in the summer!! in winter the plants just slow down a bit.

    These guys need HIGH humidity. I've heard that plants grow faster in sphagnum than peat. Mine was in peat for a year but it only grew nicely after I repotted into longfibered sphagnum.

    pthiel, you might have the Ilu Tepui species that is not named yet. These guys take years to mature! They grow on Ilu Tepui with Ionassi. I had one given to me as H.Ionassi that never matured and it's been 4 years I think. Grew a lot of new sideshoots, but I gave it away a year ago. Check out the link below!
