    Hmmm...

    What about a heliamphora that can take mid to high 80s and mid to high 70s temps year round? I doubt that it exists, but I remember that the savage garden says that some heliamphora can do well in hothouses.

    Joel,

    Some forms of H. minor grow at low elevations so I would start there. I also think that a form of nutans does but I am not 100% sure on that one

    I think its heterodoxa that occurs at lower levels and is more heat tolerant. Hybrids with this species are also happy with slightly higher temperatures.
    I grow my nutans (giant clone) under the same conditions as heterodoxa and it's hybrids, which is day temps about 80F, but with a drop at night, and it grows faster than any of the other Helis I grow. Almost all of the nutans in general cultivation are the 'giant clone', as it is the only easy form of this plant to grow.

    Cheers
    Vic

    Oh great!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I'll definitely try heterodoxa and minor then.... eventually... They are definitly two of the coolest looking cps around. I'll put them next to my 2 sarrs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
